#Anonymous on Oct 04, 2018 :
I am not a strong advocate of living in Thunder Bay.prices are out of this world for food.city lacks infrastructure conducive to pleasant living.isolated so advantages of larger city and ammenities of southern Ontario are non existent.if you are a bush wacker and like to hunt and fish you are in the right spot. I’m gone when the opportunity prevails.makes me depressed

For a project I need to have the raw data that has been collected for Thunder Bay, Canada in your website. I do not need any names just the numbers that were entered for the items so that my teacher sees a distribution in the charts. He would not accept the average. I really hope you can help me out.

Thanks
