Congratulations to Pepco Thunder Bay who pledged a financial contribution to the 18th edition of the Parade of Lights that was held on Saturday, December 3, 2016. This traditional event which is organized by the Thunder Bay Police Association, brings together nearly 100 floats that walk the route collecting donations, which are turned over to local charities.
Pepco is thrilled to be organizing the traditional Christmas Train again this year, in partnership with Les Médias de l’Épinette Noire Inc. and with the collaboration of Ontario Northland Transportation Commission. Children aged 3 to 8 years old from Hearst, Mattice-Val côté and Constance Lake will have the chance to meet Santa and his elves in exchange of a non-perishable item. This enjoyable event helps supply the food bank Le Samaritain du Nord with food during the holidays.

Carbon Monoxide is commonly known as CO and is a colorless, odorless and tasteless toxic gas. Propane appliances, along with other fuel-burning appliances, present a risk of carbon dioxide (CO) poisoning if not installed, operated, vented or maintained properly. High levels of CO can be generated by appliances that are defective or improperly installed or maintained. It can also enter a home if the chimney or venting system is blocked.
