Moving to Thunder Bay, ON?

Thunder Bay is a city in Ontario, Canada with a metro population of over 120,000 residents.  The city is geographically situated right on Lake Superior, and it is also the largest city to have a coastline on this lake. Multiple land formations jut out into Lake Superior and form the body of water that is the actual Thunder Bay.

Those moving to Thunder Bay will want to know about a specific landmark that is rich with folklore and history. When viewed from the City, the horizon of mesa land formations resembles a reclining giant. Over the years, the city has adopted this mascot. "The Sleeping Giant," as it is called, is considered to be the watchful protector of the Thunder Bay community.
