City of North Bay Sports Tourism Coordinator Larry Tougas envisions big things for the city over the next five to 10 years.

After a couple of dozen OFSAA tournaments, the 2018 Ford World Women’s Curling Championship,  the recent provincial ringette tournament, and the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling this fall — many of which are million dollar economic spinoff events — Tougas says the best way to take the next step in sports tourism is to invest and expand our infrastructure.
