Letters to the Editor


Letter: Conservative blunder

To the editor: One more Conservative decision and one more reason why our next federal election will be an important one. This month, another important part of our Canada and Northern Ontario was almost lost.

Letter: Metre maid

To the editor: In his letter to Thunder Bay Source on Aug.13, Steve Safronuk calls attention to the term “cubic metre” on his water bill. He goes on to say that a metre is used for distance and a litre is used for volume.

Letter: Number crunching

To the editor: In an article published in Thunder Bay Source Aug. 13, 2010 (Candidates not numerous), city clerk John Hannam says acclamations are rare in Thunder Bay, and that it’s unusual in Ontario for a city of this size to have any acclamations.

Editorial: Act goes too far

The provincial Liberals, it seems, are about the only people in Ontario in favour of Bill 191, the proposed Far North Act.

Letter: You owe $76.79

To the editor: I was reading my father's water bill and I was shocked to see it was just over $100. But the actual volumentric charge for water usage was $10. What? Ten cubic meters of water and the bill is $100.

Letter: feeling ignored

To the editor: Last week’s editorial in Thunder Bay Source laments the lack of declared candidates for the upcoming city elections, but I don't quite understand the writers surprise.

Letter: It’s as bad as it seems

To the editor: I take issue with regards to the letter Coun . Frank Pullia wrote, entitled “How Council Makes Decisions,” (Thunder Bay Source, Aug. 6, 2010). In our entire history, I have never seen a more mismanaged city.

Voluntary census

In 2003 our American friends thought they would experiment with a voluntary census instead of a mandatory one. The result was added expense and less reliable data. This costly blunder was quickly abandoned.

Editorial - City loves the Worlds

Baseball fever has hit Thunder Bay, and hit it hard. Almost as hard as the Cubans and Americans are hitting opposition pitching this week at the World Junior Baseball Championship.
