Thunder Bay Police Board Joins Police Union in Declaring Outcome of Ongoing Racism Review

Blanket Denial Theme of Public Comments of Thunder Bay Police Board:  “There are no facts that there is systemic racism in the Thunder Bay Police Service.” [Board Vice-Chair]

Amidst allegations that their police officers too easily pre-determine the outcomes of the River Deaths of Indigenous people (“no foul play”) and are incapable of conducting bias-free investigations, the Vice Chair of the Thunder Bay Police Services Board, Brian McKinnon, has already pre-determined the outcome of the ongoing OIPRD Investigation into systemic racism at the police service he is supposed to oversee.

“I don’t anticipate anything like that coming out … There are no facts that there is systemic racism in the Thunder Bay Police Service.”
