FIRST NATIONS MOVING FORWARD WITH HUMAN RIGHTS COMPLAINT AGAINST THUNDER BAY POLICE

THUNDER BAY, ON:  Namaygoosisagagun, Eabametoong and Nibinamik First Nations supported by Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) are committed to moving forward with the Human Rights application seeking an investigation into the conduct of the Thunder Bay Police Services.

“Whether or not the police services board or the Thunder Bay mayor apologized for this unfortunate incident, the family and communities are still intent on moving forward with the application,” said Deputy Grand Chief Alvin Fiddler. “We are also not scheduled to meet over this issue with either the mayor’s office or the police services board as they asserted in reports.  It’s a shame that this incident took place in the first place but we must move forward and learn to work together to make this city safe and welcoming for everyone.”
