However the point I'd like to make is the issue of urban sprawl. Instead of the city continuing to develop more and more sub-divisions which I believe stresses the road/water/electrical infrastructure, why doesn't it start building 'up'?
I think its time for Thunder Bay to start building decent sized apartment and condo buildings in the city. If the Ring of Fire ever gets started - Thunder Bay would surely see some rise in population. They need to live somewhere. I'd hate to see more urban sprawl.
It's a chicken and egg scenario. The bears aren't a nuisance - the people building houses 'out there' are. Bears and other wild life are part of the surroundings and should be considered part of the deal.
