Letters to the Editor


Editorial- City loving 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.

A familiar read

I don’t often do book reviews but on this occasion I will make an exception. I recently picked up a rather lengthy volume (over 700 pages) and I think it is worthy of note.

Editorial: Blues Fest border woes

The weekend could have been a disastrous one for organizers of the Thunder Bay Blues Festival. On Friday Michael Burks’s entire band was turned away at the Pigeon River border crossing, dropping a huge hole in the festival schedule.

A shallow love story

Nicholas Carr fell in love in 1986. That was the year he got his first computer. In the early 1990s he went online and his feelings grew even stronger.

EDITORIAL: Plenty to do in town

What a wonderful weekend to stick around Thunder Bay. First and foremost is the ninth annual Thunder Bay Blues Festival, featuring the likes of Blues Traveler, Taj Mahal and Robert Randolph in the headlining spots.

Canada on guard

Well, we finally did it. Thanks to Prime Minister Harper Canada can now take its rightful place among the despots and tyrants of the world. We can bully innocent citizens and trample on human rights with the best of them.

Letter - Senior homes need dollars

To the editor: The following is an open letter to Minster of Health Deb Matthews. I am a 94-year-old resident of the Hogarth Riverview Manor nursing home at 300 North Lillie Street in Thunder Bay.

Letter - Costs considered?

To the editor: In most cases, when a corporation considering investing in a particular community is met with public protests, their reaction is to threaten to take the project elsewhere. Many of them make good on that threat.

Editorial - Northwestern Ontario giant

Northwestern Ontario has lost one of its greatest champions. Leo Bernier, known affectionately as the Emperor of the North, died this week at 81, leaving behind a political legacy that will be hard to match.

Flyer beware

Last week I had occasion to travel to Mississauga which meant I had to fly to Pearson Airport. I have done this many times before and I wasn’t expecting any trouble. I met a friend and colleague at the airport here and the two of us set off together.
