Thunder Bay - Wednesday

Thunder Bay – Wednesday

Of course.. The spray painted word  “stop” was used to mark the location of the stop block.  Sadly, the paint that was used to create the stop block is disappearing…after less than six months?  Value for money?  No way. Action at the DSSAB apartment complex located at the corner of Cumberland and Water Streets. The […]

Thunder Bay – Wednesday Sky

Some photos of the sky on Wednesday morning.  The first half are HDR photos.  The rest are conventional.

Thunder Bay - Tuesday

Thunder Bay – Tuesday

Lines were painted on the asphalt this summer. Pieces of foam insulation that have been produced by the work taking place on the DSSAB building at the corner of Cumberland and Water Streets.  No control required by the contractor.  Contractor not required to pick the stuff up…not that the contractor could because the wind is […]

Canada – LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP….Only In Canada? Pity.

Canadian elementary school teachers attend ‘LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP’ inclusiveness training session A Canadian school board is making progressive steps by having teachers participate in extensive inclusiveness training, but the title of the session has left some perplexed.

Thunder Bay - Monday

Thunder Bay – Monday

I pass these every day.  I still do not understand why the installation of whatever is going to be here was not included in last summer’s Court Street construction contract. It would most likely be cheaper and it would be up and running right now. As it is, these bases are open to damage all […]

The World – The Dark Inevitability Of Zionism

What’s going on in Israel?  Apartheid.  Racism.  Ethnic cleansing.  For some reason, no country is willing to speak up against the treatment of the Palestinians by the Zionist movement in Israel. The BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) is having a distinct effect.  People need to keep putting financial pressure on the country of Israel to […]

Thunder Bay - Sunday

Thunder Bay – Sunday

I have never had an ice beer. It seems popular amongst the public drinking crowd in Thunder Bay. More Chronicle Journal trash waiting to blow out onto neighbouring lands. Some has already made it onto railway property Holes in the clouds Yup…remote controlled train engines are real things. This what is being dug up in […]

Thunder Bay - Saturday.

Thunder Bay – Saturday.

Chronicle Journal trash on or around the company’s property. No sand on this Marina Park sidewalk.  Use it at your own risk. The new parking lot constructed at the south end of Marina Park An interesting design.  I would use a different style of valve cover myself, but what do I know? The problem with […]

The World – Net Neutrality

Net neutrality….its in the news. I am sure you are all for the idea of governments regulating the Internet.  Who would argue against that concept?  Well, Jeffrey Tucker makes a case as to why net neutrality is exactly what the telecom giants want.  Regulation stifles competition.  Competition improves service and eventually will lower prices.  (read […]
