General Manager – Infrastructure & Operations
Starting to see a lot of this at intersections. Sad.
Cumberland Street underwent repaving this passed summer. The cracks are now back with a vengeance. Its hard to see how this city is going to get on top of its street infrastructure mess. Its all about trying to hold things together until after next years election. Appearing to act. Appearing to care. Just until after […]
While I was walking up Red River Road today I noticed that this woman had fallen down in this crosswalk at the intersection with Court Street. Apparently she had stepped into the sunken manhole and fell over. The manhole is right in the centre of the crosswalk. It appears that she was uninjured. The top […]
You can see just how closely our Engineering Department monitors contractor operations. Seems that this whole manhole bruhaha caught our highly paid City engineers by surprise. They actually had to drive out to the manholes in question and LOOK at them. And then DRIVE over them. Poor, poor engineers. No representative from the Engineering Department […]

I’m guessing that the saw operator eyeballed these cuts. But then, does anyone really care? No pride or craftsmanship here. Looks like shit. Why do managers get pay increases when their departments produce shit like this?
I wonder just how long it will be before the retention pond is full of garbage? I’m guessing that there is a discarded Tim Horton’s cup in that pond right now. Will this pond make a significant difference in the wastewater treatment system? Nope. It might have been prudent to remove the labels from the […]
I understand that the section of Algoma Street between Cornwall and Bay is scheduled for full closure in the near future. Some work is going to be done on the one year old street. Last year, the street torn up for months. Closed for months. Local businesses had a tough time. It will be interesting […]
The article mentions SCS Insurance Adjusters as being the company that has declared the City of Thunder Bay to be not at fault for the sewage plant failure last May. The plant failure led to sewage backing up into a large number of city basements. The results of the firm’s investigation is headline worthy to […]
