Thunder Bay – There Needs To Be A Reasonable Limit

  This closure can be measured in weeks instead of days.  Yes…the water and sewer lines are being replaced on Cornwall Street and that does require the intersection of Banning and Cornwall to be closed to traffic for a period of time,,but there needs to be limit here. What time frame is reasonable? I figure […]

Thunder Bay - The City And The Spirit Garden

Thunder Bay – The City And The Spirit Garden

A horror story? A laugh-out-loud comedy? A tearjerker? All three?  I would be interested to read the behind-the-scenes story about how the project went 50% over the original budget estimate. (The original $60 million budget included a new $20 million marina, which was never built) Or how the city spent millions developing the so-called surplus […]

Thunder Bay - McIntyre Street

Thunder Bay – McIntyre Street

Another Thunder Bay street closed. Why? No reason right now because the contractor has moved on to some other location.  I guess the contractor will return to finish this sidewalk installation in…several weeks?

Thunder Bay - Tender 14

Thunder Bay – Tender 14

I don’t know about you but what we were told we were getting for $40 million back in 2009 and what we are getting in 2014 for well over $60 million seems so much less. I wonder if that will happen with the $100 million waterfront arena? Promises broken by cost cutting. Notice that the […]

Thunder Bay - CN Station
