Until Highway 69 between Parry Sound and Sudbury was completed, drivers from Southern Ontario that wanted to reach Sudbury or Sault Ste. Marie (Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario) had to travel along a rather out-of-the-way routing on Highway 11 (Ontario Highway 11) to North Bay (North Bay, Ontario), and then take Highway 17 (Ontario Highway 17) westbound into Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie. Radio Days His career began in radio at Sault Ste. Marie (Sault Ste.

The '''Soo Thunderbirds''' are a Junior "A" ice hockey team from Sault Ste. Marie (Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario), Ontario, Canada. They are a part of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League. With the Soo Greyhounds and Soo Thunderbirds playing out of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Sault business man Domenic Sacco knew that surrounding communities would jump at the chance of seeing high-calibre hockey in their hometowns on a regular basis. Thus the reintroduction of the Thessalon Flyers in the small farming community of Thessalon, Ontario. With a competitive talent pool being sought by teams such as the Thunderbirds and nearby Soo Indians and Blind River Beavers, Sacco knew that drawing a competitive team would be difficult. Offering to cover transportation costs to and from surrounding areas, players from all over the north shore of Lake Huron combined to make the 2003-2004 Thessalon Flyers. Of these players included former Great North Midget League players Lucas Bedell and Thessalon native Jason Bird. Failing to pay for ice fees in Thessalon, coupled with failed sponsorhip deals, left the coffers of the team nearly empty and players left town, leaving the team not nearly as competitive as originally anticipated. Despite this setback, the Flyers went on to the NSHL final, losing four games to one to the Wawa Travellers. Players upset with the lack of team travel for the first two games of the series in Wawa sent management a message by refusing to report to practice the following week and neglected to show up for the next two games of the final series resulting in forfeiture of the title, and a hefty suspension levied on team owner and general manager Sacco by the Northern Ontario Hockey Association. The team has yet to return to Thessalon, as a league to play in no longer exists.

strong leadership

at the time was important, he was still only a minority player and the American investors had control. Algoma Steel went through years of ups and downs, marked by a lack of strong leadership, and in 1935 the company was again forced into receivership. This time, Dunn engineered a takeover so that he became the sole controlling shareholder thereby allowing him to take the tough but necessary reorganization measures to restore profitability to the steel maker. As Algoma Steel's president and Chairman of its board of directors, he successfully turned it into one of the largest steel mills of the day and for more than twenty years guided the fortunes of the company he had made into one of the most profitable producers in Canada. During the Second World War (World War II), his company benefited from the huge demand for steel by the military. Although at times his relationship was difficult with the government minister in charge, C.D. Howe, the two became lifelong associates. Howe later acquired a summer manor next door to the Dunn estate at the seaside resort of St. Andrews (St. Andrews, New Brunswick) in New Brunswick and served as an Executor of Dunn's estate after his death.

Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario

'''Sault Ste. Marie''' ( "Soo Saint Marie") is a city on the St. Marys River (St. Marys River (Michigan-Ontario)) in Algoma District, Ontario, Canada. It is the third largest city in Northern Ontario, after Sudbury (Greater Sudbury) and Thunder Bay.

While there is some debate on the exact meaning of "Sault" in Sault Ste. Marie, scholars of early French note that the word translates into ''jump'', referring to the place where one needs to "jump", or put into the St. Mary’s River. This translation relates to the treacherous rapids and cascades of the St. Mary's River, which descend more than 20 feet from the level of Lake Superior to the level of the lower lakes. Hundreds of years ago, this prohibited boat traffic and required an overland portage from one lake to the other. Thus the entire name translates to "Saint Mary's Rapids" or "Saint Mary's Falls". The word ''sault'' is pronounced

Sault Ste. Marie is bordered to the east by the Rankin (Rankin Location 15D, Ontario) and Garden River (Garden River 14, Ontario) First Nation reserves, and to the west by Prince Township (Prince, Ontario). To the north, the city is bordered by an unincorporated portion of Algoma District (Unorganized North Algoma District), which includes the local services boards (local services board (Ontario)) of Aweres (Aweres, Ontario), Batchawana Bay (Batchawana Bay, Ontario), Goulais and District (Goulais and District, Ontario), Peace Tree (Peace Tree, Ontario) and Searchmont (Searchmont, Ontario).

The city's census agglomeration, including the townships of Laird (Laird, Ontario), Prince (Prince, Ontario) and Macdonald, Meredith and Aberdeen Additional and the First Nations reserves (Indian reserve) of Garden River (Garden River, Ontario) and Rankin (Rankin Location 15D, Ontario), had a total population of 79,800 in 2011.

Sault Ste. Marie is the seat of the Algoma District.

To the south, across the river, is the United States and the city of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. The two cities are joined by the International Bridge (Sault Ste. Marie International Bridge), which connects Interstate 75 on the Michigan side and Huron Street (and former Ontario Secondary Highway 550B) on the Ontario side. Shipping traffic in the Great Lakes system bypasses the Saint Mary's Rapids via the American Soo Locks, the world's busiest canal in terms of tonnage that passes through it, while smaller recreational and tour boats use the Canadian Sault Ste. Marie Canal.

Established as one settlement (Cross-border town naming) by Jesuit missionaries (Jesuit Missions in North America) in the 17th century, the two ''saults'' remained so until after the War of 1812. "Sault Ste. Marie – history" , The North View, accessed 20 Dec 2008
