Letters to the Editor


Local service not great

To the editor: I had the pleasure of listening to Harold Wilson, president of the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce last Monday morning trying to convince Thunder Bay residents to stay home and enjoy the many benefits of shopping locally rather than sp

EDITORIAL - Dividend a blessing

The city’s Renew Thunder Bay plan is off to a rousing start, working out better than city manager Tim Commisso dared to envision when he first proposed it last year. On Wednesday TBayTel made its first contribution, to the tune of $15.

Keep 12 councillors

To the editor: There was talk about dropping city councillors from 12 to four. It seemed to me this proposal melded well into what is now a worldwide trend. Every president, prime minister and Christian leader has been calling for a "New World Order.

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.

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.
