Oh Danny boy, the pumps, the pumps are running…….. The pumps have been running in this corner for quite a while. I know the water makes no difference in the big construction picture. Piles driven to firm bottom and all. I find it interesting though. All this money being spent and you have these small […]
I can’t imagine what the view is going to be once the building(s) are complete. I believe a lot of people will be surprised. Not the good kind of surprised.

Come one, come all to see the Amazing Commisso and his trained councilors performing on selected Mondays at Thunder Bay City Hall. Be stupified as the Amazing Commisso sticks head inside a councilor’s mouth. Watch as councilors balance objects on their noses.

“The Downtown/Waterfront site is being recommended by my team as part of the Phase 2 Feasibility Study. The rating of the sites was done by our team and without any involvement by either council or city staff.” – Conrad Boychuk, Chronicle Journal October 22, 2012. No involvement at all? None? If you believe that, I have some […]
Walmart build a store without a parking lot? Never happen. They are, after all, in business to MAKE money where the City of Thunder Bay just spends it. Poorly. Anyway, would things be different if it was a Walmart being built on Water Street? Would everyone be so eager to allow them to use up […]

One moment Dr. Commisso is taking City Council to the woodshed for not cutting programs such as the Centennial Botanical Conservatory and the Municipal Golf Course, a mere drop in the municipal budget. The next moment Mr. Tim is telling the same City Council to give RegenMed money, and hire consultants left right and centre […]
