Dease Pool Supporters will "Never Give Up"

City Holding Open House Nov 2ns 5:30 pm.

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO,  October 28, 2019  (LSN) Dease Pool supporters will never give up.  City officials are simply not listening to the Dease/Vickers community. The Dease Pool advocates have collected over 6,000 signatures on a petition to get Dease Pool re-vitalized, have presented a plan to City Council written by Kateri Banning to get the historic pool repaired and open for a fraction of the cost. They have attended and organized countless meetings and deputations before the city council. The Heritage Advisory Council has also relayed to council that they deem the site to be of Heritage value. 

Dease Pool supporters are planning to picket the open house at Fort William Gardens on November 2nd at 5:30 pm.  Dease Pool supporter Lori Paras says that she can see that there is, in her view, no interest in listening to the citizens and residents in the Dease neighbourhood.

On social media, the message relays the frustration and commitment loud and clear:

“No more talking cause they ain’t listening. We have the picket signs, we just need your body to carry it and stand beside the advocates for the Dease/Vickers community. The community has spoken over the last 10 months and have collected 6000 signatures to make City Council aware they want their pool rebuilt. This council does not care what the people have to say, how hard or how long they advocate. They will just push through their agenda and hope we forget about the betrayal in three years when the next election arrives.

“Stand up for yourself now because they will feel they have three more years to finish their agenda and your community may be next on the chopping block to ensure their legacy project gets built. Come and stand up for all of us on Saturday, November 2 at 5:30 pm outside Fort William Gardens. We picket while Councillor Hamilton and city administration ram through their closure of Dease
