Maybe you can ask the Manager of Engineering why this work is acceptable. There may be a very good explanation but I suspect not. I believe that the City of Thunder Bay advertises and awards these road contracts with zero plans. No drawings showing where everything goes. I believe it is a remove and replace philosophy that does […]
Another Mac’s robbery. Its getting to be all too common. Notice the deterrent the eye in the store’s sky has on crime? I hope City Council is paying attention here instead of just paying when it comes to police department demands. Anyway, the local police have released a photo of “a person of interest” in regards to […]
By Unpopular Demand? At the present rate of donation, the $5M goal will be reached by 2050…maybe. Stick a fork in this fund raising drive. Its done. Time to move on to Plan B: The taxpayers pay and the City Administration take responsibility. Someone fucked up. Someone’s head has to roll. Let the finger pointing […]
Let’s say that everything that the City wants built in Prince Arthur’s landing gets built down there. Condominiums, hotel, Art Gallery, Botanical Conservatory, 2 Commercial buildings by the developer, Market Square gets built plus a restaurant and additional commercial space in the train station.

Installing these service valves in a specific location should be child’s play.All the information is on the plan. Just establish a line running parallel […]

There are a couple of points left out by the guy putting on the course in the cartoon above. A couple of points that are fairly important Try to tie your venture to some Liberal Party supporter. It does not hurt. Make sure you pay yourself a hefty salary out of the money the […]
I have often heard that if police were to actually try and sell those drugs on the street for the price they are saying the drugs are worth, nobody would buy them. The big numbers do look good though, if you are trying to justify your enforcement program.
Are we, the citizens of Thunder Bay getting value for the $32,000,000 plus annual police budget? Is Thunder Bay a safe place? Are crime rates going down? How much money is enough? How can the citizens know? Safety is a “feeling”. Feeling safe and being safe do not always go hand in hand. The […]
