Shipping activity starting to heat up at Port of Thunder Bay

Streak of Green – Hair SalonHey Stylists! It’s time to go green! Looking for a F/T stylist to join our team in a very busy organic, eco friendly full service

The Port of Thunder Bay has started to rebound after a slow start to the year.

Lingering winter weather is being blamed for that slow start, but with more spring-like temperatures hitting the region statistics are also heating up.

Reports from May show the port handled 45 vessels and more than 860,000 tonnes of cargo last month. 

That's a five per cent increase from May of last year. 

But for the year-to-date, the numbers are lagging behind 2012, with 1.7-million tonnes of cargo shipped so far. That represents nearly an eight per cent drop from the same time in 2012.

How do you know they are for the local project?

I have seen windmill parts passing through Keefer and onto trains for two years now, none of which ended up here.

There's almost always windmill parts and pieces there.

I doubt that any of those there now are our future junk heaps.

Where are the ships now? There are only 10 grain vessels due for the month of June! WoW! Not a great number! Causing lay offs in the grain industry. Do you think this has anything to do with getting rid of the Canadian Wheat Board? Thanks Harper! Think about it; compare to past years!!
