In so doing, the City was able to achieve substantial completion without any additional delays and include these […]
They used the old Corporate Report 2013-018 trick. The oldest trick in the book. And the local Thunder Bay media just does not care. Just does not care.
It’s easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission. – Rear Admiral Grace Hopper – US Navy I spent a bit of time today thinking about the Aquatic Habitat Pond that is costing us taxpayers an additional $400,000 plus. the pond is the part of the agreement signed with DFO in 2009 providing additional […]
