Maybe if Senator Wallin had been sent on the same $16,000 Institute for Corporate Governance/Rotman School of Business course (see previous post) Tbaytel had sent former mayor Lynn Peterson to learn how to be an effective director, things might have gone differently for Oilsands Quest Inc.

Hey…I was going to leave well enough alone. You know, not speak ill of the dead. That kind of thing. So remember, while you are hating my guts, they started it.

The old Cascades Mill. Ahhhh how short our memories are. Lets take a trip down memory lane. Remember Thunder Bay Fine Papers? Maybe Superior Fine Papers? How could anyone forget? Winston Churchill said , “History is written by the victors.” Had Churchill lived in Thunder Bay, he might have said “History is written by the […]
“It’s just what big business is doing,” he said. “They’re trying to look after the bottom line and look after their shareholders, and we have to look after our shareholders, which is the taxpayers.” – Thunder Bay Mayor Keith Hobbs, Chronicle Journal April 10, 2013 Manshield Construction was awarded a no bid $3.2 million contract […]
