Thunder Bay, ON –
Today, families of Indigenous persons whose deaths were neglected by the Thunder Bay Police Service (TBPS) are holding a press conference at the Victoria Inn in Thunder Bay, and online at Facebook Live. During the press conference, the families will speak to the importance of fulfilling the recommendation of the OIPRD’s Broken Trust report, which called for the independent reinvestigations of at least nine deaths that the TBPS failed to originally investigate. The families are seriously concerned about the role of TBPS Police Chief Sylvie Hauth in the reinvestigations, and the possibility that the reinvestigations will not be truly independent.
