Travel Tips for Thunder Bay

The city of Thunder Bay itself...

by sim1

The city of Thunder Bay itself didn't impress me very much, but the statue of Terry Fox did. I have so much admiration for him.

'Dreams are made if people only try.

I believe in miracles...I have to...

because somewhere the hurting must stop.'


TERRANCE STANLEY FOX
<
July 28, 1958-June 28, 1981


More information about Terry Fox and the Terry Fox foundation : http://www.terryfoxrun.org/

Here is some information about Terry Fox that I copied from this website :

Terry Fox was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, but raised in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, a community near Vancouver on Canada's west coast. An active teenager involved in many sports, Terry was only 18 years old when he was diagnosed with bone cancer and forced to have his right leg amputated six inches above the knee in 1977.

The night before his operation, Terry read an article about an amputee who had competed in the New York Marathon. Indirectly that story, along with Terry's observations of the intense suffering of cancer patients, set the stage for what would ultimately become the most important decision of his young life.

In 1980, Terry Fox inspired the nation by attempting to run across Canada on an artificial leg. He called this quest the Marathon of Hope. Its mission was to raise money and awareness for cancer research in Canada.

With little fanfare, Terry started his journey in St. John’s, Newfoundland on April 12, 1980. Although it was difficult to garner attention in the beginning, enthusiasm soon grew, and the money collected along his route began to mount. He ran 43 kilometres a day through Canada's Atlantic provinces, Quebec and Ontario.

It was a journey that Canadians never forgot.

However, on September 1st, after 143 days and 5,373 kilometres, Terry was forced to stop his Run outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario because the cancer had reappeared in his lungs. An entire nation was stunned and saddened. Terry passed away on June 28, 1981 at age 22.

The heroic Canadian was gone, but his legacy was just beginning.

To date, an estimated $270 million worldwide has been raised for cancer research in Terry's name.

Thunder Bayisms

Some unique phrases or terms used in Thunder Bay (will add as I think of them)

Going to "Camp" - This term is the same as "cottage" from Southern Ontario. A vacation house, often on a lake.

"Persians" - A dessert unique to Thunder Bay (I believe). Can be bought at Nuccis deli and is kinda like a donut without the hollow center, covered in pink icing.

"Sorels" Sorrels is a name of boots that are very warm and unfortunately...often necesary during winter in Thunder Bay.

Always take your camera, where ever you go!!! A photo oppertunity is always there when you don't expect it. I never travel without mine :-)

This is one page in a series of many pages about Canada. If you are interested in reading more about this beautiful country, you should take a look at my Canada page.
In the last travelogue of this page you can find an overview of all the pages I have already written and some ideas of what I will start writing about soon. I have listed them by province, starting in the east in Nova Scotia and working my way to the west to Vancouver Island. Here are some pictures from my other Canada pages.

Go sailing on Lake Superior

by chris_i79

If you want to see the city from a different perspective try going sailing out on the lake. If you show up to the Marina during the week before 545 often you can get on a boat in exchange for a little bit of rope pulling.

Where in the world is Thunder Bay

by chris_i79

Just finding Thunder Bay may be considered off the beaten path. It is located about 8 hours East of Winnipeg and about 15 hours North West of Toronto. It is on the Western shore of Lake Superior, the worlds largest lake.
