I know. Here we have more photos to show just how bad our infrastructure is. These things will be fixed using the money being generated from the tax increase that City Council justified using an opinion poll. Governing by polls….do we need councilors then? Think about it. Do we need to spend all those millions […]
Tip 372 – Check paving work after rain […]
Personally, I think the entire site selection process was designed to ensure the only choice to make is Water Street. City Admin wonders why the public does not get involved in municipal affairs. This is exactly why. To quote Bill Murray in Meatballs, “It doesn’t really matter.” Water Street has been crowned….a long time ago. […]
See a pattern here.? You are probably asking yourself, we’ll, does that really matter? The ground settled over the winter, the contractor will come back and top it up. Problem fixed. True.

This backhoe spent the winter on a city owned lot at the corner of Algoma and Ambrose Streets. Its still there. I wonder if I can sell it. Nobody seems to want it. Hmmm Kijiji might be a good place to start.

The Canadian Urban Institute hands out awards recognizing leadership, innovation and environmental sustainability in brownsfield redevelopment across Canada. Brownsfields, as you know, are abandoned or […]
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/thunder-bay/story/2012/04/10/tby-waterfront-developer.html CBC Radio did a report on the Waterfront Project. The link to the webpage is above. I have added the mp3 file below. The report mentions a few things that have been missing in our other media outlets. Where was this information 3 years ago? There are several of my earlier post that […]
