Letters to the Editor


City could make history

To the editor: Wow! If this windfarm goes ahead, our current council will be credited in the history books for being the first to exploit and deface the 2.5 billion year old Nor’Westers.

Dare to dream

I find it interesting how dreams play such a large role in our language, our culture and our hopes and aspirations. From the time when our mothers first wish us sweet dreams until we draw our last breath, most of us are chasing one dream or another.

Abuse of power

They say the only two sure things in life are death and taxes. A visit from the Grim Reaper is tragic but some Canadian taxpayers are finding out that when the Canada Revenue Agency comes to call, it can be almost as bad.

Editorial - Legal wait a good plan

On Monday city council will be seeking legal advice on its next move in the continuing saga of wind turbines on the Nor’Wester Mountain Range. Could this be the beginning of the end for Horizon Wind Inc.

Letter fell short

To the editor: Stewart Rathje's letter to the editor (Thunder Bay Source, March 26, 2010) was, for the most part, well written and thought provoking.

Citizen misinformed

To the editor: In vigorous response to Mr. Rathje’s letter (Thunder Bay Source, March 26, 2010) I would ask readers to seriously consider the flaws in his argument as well as the negligent misinformation held therein.

Mayor's race could be fun

October is starting to get very, very interesting. On Thursday, retired Police Association president Keith Hobbs officially threw his hat into the mayor’s race, giving the city its first true race since 2003.

Ontario budget makes North a priority

Northern Ontario is a top priority in this year’s provincial budget. As part of our Open Ontario plan, the 2010 Budget provides $1.2 billion in new funding that will create jobs and economic growth throughout the north.

Pension bill likely to pass

This past week I was happy to table a new Private Members’ Bill that will help secure the pensions of workers at companies that enter bankruptcy proceedings or undertake supervised restructuring.

U.S. spring break

It was spring break in Thunder Bay and we had a problem - where to go and what to do. I don’t really have a Punta Cana disposition so I vetoed the South Seas right away.
