Thunder Bay

In Thunder Bay, many residents are upset that despite our local wonder leading the voting by a wide margin, the three hand-picked judges decided to ignore the people's choice, leaving the Sleeping Giant out of the top seven.

The Sibley Peninsula, or the Sleeping Giant as it's known in Thunder Bay, is a natural rock peninsula in the shape of a giant sleeping person. The rock juts into Lake Superior and forms Thunder Bay. There are many stories around this landmark. One Ojibway legend identifies the giant as Nanabijou, who turned to stone when the secret location of a rich silver mine, now known as Silver Islet, was disclosed to white men.
