for reasons of passenger safety, the operation of this vehicle with anyone standing in front of the yellow line is strictly prohibited There is a sign above the front windshield that says something like that on every bus operated by Thunder Bay Transit. The message on the sign is very clear. Nothing left to the imagination. […]
Remembering the Trans Canada TrAIL In 2015, a very desperate City of Thunder Bay Administration, got very creative when it came to funding street repairs. City Hall declared the main arterial streets to be part of the Trans Canada Trail system. This made them eligible for provincial funding through the Trans Canada Trail Ontario program. […]
A little late Thursday, May 9, 2013 Something that has perplexed, frustrated and sometimes enraged me is the inability of contractors, including city workers, to give sufficient advance notice of road or lane closures to drivers. Well, add pedestrians to the list of the offended. Wednesday’s paper had a photograph of the closed Cameron Street […]

A better looking flood ravaged community? “For years, we’ve been spending a lot of money moving people, flying them out every time there’s a flood,” said New Democrat Gilles Bisson, whose riding includes the flood-plagued James Bay region. “It just seems to me […]
Its about time. I had my doubts but it looks like the mayor did come through with additional compensation for the residents of Thunder Bay who were victims of the sewage treatment plant failure May 2012. Hang on. Wait a second. Oh…………..he’s talking about Kashechewan First Nation evacuees? Ahhh…I understand now. Never mind.
The above damage to the Waterfront Plaza in Prince Arthur’s Landing appears to be related to the Winter Carnival or Family Fun Days…whatever it was called. Two winters old and the place looks…well…less than stellar. Value for money? Not on your life. City of Thunder Bay ALEXANDER ROBERT General Manager – Community & Emergency Services […]
