Thunder Bay – Thursday

I have not taken many photos of the DSSAB apartment building under construction at the corner of Cornwall and Algoma Streets because the workers have moved inside.  Not much going on outside to see. Maybe some sort of marker on the end of this might help vehicles avoid it.  It is hard to see when […]

Thunder Bay – Why Does the CJ Care About Poor Little Patrick Brown?

From a December 13, 2017 Chronicle Journal editorial Brown incapable of saying sorry Wynne claims Brown defamed her when he said this summer that she was on trial in the Sudbury byelection bribery imbroglio. In fact, Wynne was a brief witness at that trial – in fact, she offered to testify – but was never […]

Thunder Bay – Wednesday

The day started out cold, snow and windy.   Previously, I mentioned the posts erected at the intersection of Bay and Court Streets that I believe will have pedestrian crossing signal buttons attached to them. The problem is the location of the posts in relation to the crosswalks.  The photos that I took may not […]

Thunder Bay – Tuesday

An update of the sump discharge onto a Wilson Street sidewalk in front of the Bethel Lutheran Church.   You can see the bumps on the sidewalk that are the ice. I will keep an eye on the area to see if any new discharge is taking place. It will be easy to tell. American Tree […]

Thunder Bay – Monday

Well, at least he is riding on the street…where he belongs but I doubt if I would be riding a bike in these conditions. Injured workers demonstration had not happened yet. Something I noticed. I would think that the posts would be placed in the same location on each side of the street.  Mirror image […]

Thunder Bay – A Waterfront Mystery

Today, I had an epiphany. Why did I not notice this before? It had to do with the $1 million piece of public art located on our waterfront.  It is divided into two halves.  One half is located at the end of Pier 1.  The other half is located at the end of Pier 3.  […]

Thunder Bay – Sunday

The Wilson Street sump caused ice hazard continues to grow. Bethel Lutheran Church…. I wonder how much ice will be allowed to accumulate before someone does something about it?  You would think that the church administers and the congregation would notice but apparently not.  Maybe they are waiting for a message from God? Pigeon tracks […]

Thunder Bay – Buying Our Votes With Our Own Money

FedNor cash to contribute to intricate restoration process of carousels The 28 wooden horses of the carousel at Chippewa Park have probably been ridden for millions of miles, said Donna Gilhooly, co-chair of the carousel restoration committee.

Thunder Bay - Friday

Thunder Bay – Friday

Lots of spare cable..but for what exactly? Slowly becoming visible.  Traffic signals work best when drivers and pedestrians can see what the signal is telling them to do. Fire trucks at the DSSAB apartment complex at the corner of Cumberland and Water streets…again.  Its a short trip from the station.  Two blocks. Work on the […]
