Thunder Bay, Ont., is considered a hub for as many as 49 First Nations in northern Ontario.

It’s where many communities send their kids to get a high school education.

Sadly, it is also where seven kids have died as a result of moving away from home.

In 2007, the issue was brought to national attention after the sixth death.

An inquest was called into Reggie Bushie’s death, but it has yet to begin.

As APTN National News reporter Tiar Wilson shows us, there is fear that more lives could be lost.
