Thunder Bay - Government Town 2

Thunder Bay – Government Town 2

  I posted about this a year ago. Its not news. Its reality. Thunder Bay is completely dependent on the public purse.  This article mentions the public sector jobs but does not mention the thousands of private sector jobs that are directly dependent on the  public purse as well. There are many local companies that […]

Thunder Bay - Racial Harmony...Do As I say Not As I Do...

Thunder Bay – Racial Harmony…Do As I say Not As I Do…

I am surprised that the Chronicle Journal would print articles (Saturday December 20, 2014 online edition) that use racial slurs as team names.  It appears that the newspaper’s policy toward Native Canadians does not exclude the use of the term “redskin”. This behaviour is all very curious. Had Ms. Tamara Johnson used that term, I […]

Canada - Control The Media, The Media Controls Us

Canada – Control The Media, The Media Controls Us

Canada now has a Department of Propaganda.  The Harper Government is creating a “fog of information” where the reader/viewer” has no idea whether they are reading/watching real news items or quasi-fictional government propaganda.  Combine that with the 2011  robocall  scandal.  Electoral fraud that the Harper Government is in no hurry to investigate even if the evidence […]

The World – Please, Could You Help Me…You Evil, Commie Bastard?

Earlier, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced it had determined that North Korea was behind the hacking of Sony, saying Pyongyang’s actions fell “outside the bounds of acceptable state behavior.” Obama said North Korea appeared to have acted alone. Washington began consultations with Japan, China, South Korea and Russia seeking their assistance in reining in […]

The World - What If It Isn't North Korea?

The World – What If It Isn’t North Korea?

The Sony hack…is North Korea guilty? I don’t believe it for one second. There is much more to this story than what we know. Behind the sc ens deals. Pulling the movie “The Interview” from public release? A movie that cost around $80 million to produce and market? Nope…I wonder what else that the hackers […]

The World - Financial Stability Board’s “Adequacy of Loss-Absorbing Capacity of Global Systemically Important Banks in Resolution.

The World – Financial Stability Board’s “Adequacy of Loss-Absorbing Capacity of Global Systemically Important Banks in Resolution.

Back in mid-November, the leaders of the  G20 countries met in Brisbane Australia. I am not sure what, if anything came of that meeting. The entire purpose of the annual meeting is to make sure all the countries are on the same page when it comes to keeping the global financial crisis at bay for […]

Thunder Bay - The Gravelle Weathervane

Thunder Bay – The Gravelle Weathervane

Thunder Bay – Superior North MPP and Ontario’s Minister of Northern Development and Mines, Michael Gravelle, said he probably wouldn’t support calling for the whole board’s resignation like Hobbs, but admits that changes do need to be made in how decisions are made. “It certainly startled me as well and I’m conscious that there needs […]

Thunder Bay - Your Tax Dollars At Work

Thunder Bay – Your Tax Dollars At Work

Your tax dollars at work. Intersection of Red River Road and Algoma Street. These pavement markings were applied on November 8..a little over a month ago.  When  these markings were applied, the weather was on the cold side.  It looks like there is an adhesion problem. As you can see in the photos below, some […]

Thunder Bay - Tax Increase Likely....Surprise!

Thunder Bay – Tax Increase Likely….Surprise!

Yup….property taxes will increase next year.  Anyone surprised?  That gutsy prediction did get on the front page of the CJ…like everything else the mayors says. Slow news day I guess.

Thunder Bay - An Embarrassment Of Riches

Thunder Bay – An Embarrassment Of Riches

The city’s police station has become an “embarrassment” and a safety risk. That’s how two executive members of the Thunder Bay Police Association described the Balmoral Street station to the Thunder Bay Police Services Board on Tuesday morning, urging for a planned expansion of the headquarters to go ahead immediately. – Tbnewswatch I am sure […]
