From the Publisher: Timing is everything in this game

Phew! The New Year is here and so are we. That’s a good thing, depending on your perspective, I suppose.

Mike’s rant — “Magic” dividend continues to amaze

Ya know, there are a few hearty souls – see suffered oxygen deprivation at some point in their lives – who are still paying attention to all the goings on regarding Grimsby Energy, Grimsby Power, Niagara Power, Holdco2 (whatever their flavour of the day is).

Mike’s “Christmas” rant — ‘Twas the night before something strange

The tradition continues… (With apologies to Clement C. Moore) ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through town, Not a taxpayer was stirring, they all sported frowns.

I am going to reach out – please picture this, good reader – and collectively slap every resident of Grimsby right now. Did you feel it? I certainly hope so because you people need to wake the heck up before you find a big “closed due to bankruptcy” sign on Grimsby town hall. Yes, on […]

Mike’s Rant: Anyone ready to get a little dirty?
