#752 Inside Thunder Bay’s Police
CANADALAND has spent a lot of time in Thunder Bay and the events of the last month have forced us to once again turn our focus back on the city as the police force is said to be "on the brink of collapse."
CANADALAND has spent a lot of time in Thunder Bay exploring the deep-rooted racism in the city and the stories of Indigenous people who live there, not to mention the stories of the Indigenous people who have died there.
In 2018, the Office of the Independent Police Review Director released the Broken Trust report, concluding that Thunder Bay’s police service was a home for systemic racism. The civilian oversight board and the police force executive leadership was cleared and new people were brought in. But the outcome of the staffing changes and all the reports – at least to this point – is not a success story. The cycle of denial has continued.
