Thunder Bay – Monday

More planters being vandalized

Looks like this one was tipped over. The plants were placed back in by someone.

The granite block has finally been placed in the centre of the walkways. Its purpose is to stop vehicles from using the walkways as shortcuts.

Contractor installing Guide posts. Not guard posts. Guide posts.  Just as guide rails is the proper term.  Not guard rails.  Guide not guard.

Damaged by construction equipment

You can see that washboarding is starting to show up.  Needs grading.  This should already be paved.  No excuse for leaving it gravel for as long as it has been.

The foreslope is very steep. As you can see that some slope material has slid down into the ditch.

Might be time to trim this ditch growth back a touch?  Looks pretty bad.

Looks like a poopy diaper.  Exactly what you want to see in Thunder Bay’s premier tourist destination.

Contractor did not compact the top soil before laying sod on it.  As you can see, driving on the freshly laid sod makes a very big mess.

Is this as good as it gets in this city?

A Great Blue Heron.  Did not hang around very long.

Shrub beds are overgrown with weeds

What the hell is this?  Did something hatch out of that?

Lose your clothes?  No problem.  They are giving clothes away for free.

    Actually, what appears to be weeds is in fact natural landscaping with local, native adapted plants.

    It is quite common in contemporary landscaping of public places.

    In many ways, it is preferable to the city having open mud for 9 – 10 months of the year, and then planting ordered rows of flowering non – native plants they put in like clockwork in late June, and then remove on Sept 1st, regardless of weather.

    I literally puke when I see the state of our Waterfront RipOff.
    This entire pathetic filthy slum of our really is the worst possible hell to be mired in.
    In the timeless wordings, of the greatest Canadian thespian, Bubbles…. GREEEEASY!!
