The best laid schemes of mice and man……….. James Street Swing Bridge fire article here
Follow the money. This is not the first Enhanced Infrastructure Renewal Plan. Its the third plan. Tens of millions of dollars….poof! Gone. Disappeared. I believe that our City management have no idea what they are doing. All I know is that their wages keep going up and up and up and I have no […]
City Council unanimous in approving City Admin’s report suggested Infrastructure priority items. Its obvious that taxes are going to go up and municipal debt may be incurred to pay for infrastructure gap elimination. Price? $150 million? More? Less? Who really knows?

The Fort William Gardens proved to be such a huge asset for the south core businesses, locating the obscenely […]
Interesting…an article about the success of the north core businesses without mentioning Prince Arthur’s Landing, the proposed event Centre or moving the Thunder Bay Art Gallery to the waterfront. I can tell you that the $60 million plus spent on Prince Arthur’s Landing has absolutely nothing to do with the growth happening in the north […]
