In his State of the City address, the mayor pointed to littering as a major issue in Thunder Bay and I have to agree with him. Its a VERY big problem. The problem is that the mayor did not really specify what he considers to be litter. Each of us has their own idea of […]

Another building pumping water out onto the sidewalk. Makes walking on a sidewalk in this city more dangerous than it already is. Funny that nobody from the city road crews notices this and maybe …tell their supervisor? Or is it not in their contract so they don’t do it? Then, last fall, a consultant was […]
