Thunder Bay - Friday

Thunder Bay – Friday

Trash cans should be mandatory in this city. I see this kind of thing, if not worse, every week.

Thunder Bay – Monday

Scandinavian Deli on Bay Street is no more. Its moving but to where? Sign is gone. MV Federal Dee Culvert that was installed at the new intersection constructed at the Pool 6 property last fall is being taken away.  I guess with the new ditches constructed, this culvert is no longer necessary.  We will see. […]
