Letters to the Editor


No process to say thanks

I contacted the police department non-emergency number and due to a high call rate was placed on an automated system that gave me several choices. These included an extension to file a complaint against a police officer.

City needs ombudsman

To the editor: I had this Toronto Star article brought to my attention because it shows just how behind the times the city of Thunder Bay is when it comes to dealing with citizen complaints. The City of Thunder Bay needs an ombudsman.

Bus stop dilemma

The city needs a new, temporary site to put a bus terminal on the south side of the city. But is closing down a portion of Donald Street really the best solution? Thankfully on Monday night city council didn’t think so.

From the House: Budget has issues

This week the federal budget cleared its final hurdle in parliament. The Harper government, with the support of the Liberal caucus, continues to implement a misguided, deficit-laden agenda.

Investing in the Research Institute

Recently we announced that the Ontario Government is investing $6.48 million to support a leading-edge research project at the Thunder Bay Regional Research Institute (TBRRI).

The cost of victory

When Canadian taxpayers were asked to fork over $117 million to Own the Podium at the 2010 Winter Olympics we weren’t given the whole story. We should have known the podium can not be owned, it can only be rented.

Where’s national pride?

To the editor: I was very disappointed with the article written by Fiona Gardiner in the Thunder Bay Source last week. Fiona doesn’t seem to think much of us Canadians.

No guarantees online

To the editor: Kudos to Lawrence Timko with regards to his letter, Count Them By Hand, dated March 3, 2010. The poor system he describes is that paper ballots for the municipal election are scanned by machines.

O Canada hides issues

Prime Minister Stephen Harper played a great game of smoke-and-mirrors in delivering the throne speech and a day later, the federal budget.

Say it with words

Every year about this time I run out of things to say. No matter what the topic is it seems like I can’t find the words. I think I need some new material.
