OMAFRA dumps research station

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs is dumping its research station at Thunder Bay on Lakehead University.

It will give the university $1.65 million over five years as part of the deal.

Earlier OMAFRA dumped its research stations at Alfred and Kemptville, in Eastern Ontario, and at Ridgetown, which is between London and Windsor, on the University of Guelph.

The University of Guelph then closed both of the stations in Eastern Ontario.
