  1. Exactly who drowned her! You know Thunder Bay seems to be the only place I know of that doesn’t investigate thouroughly when there is a freak accident causing death! Especially when u are a certain colour? Now if that was to happen to another young old or whatever upper class white person im sure they would be putting more effort into their job? I’m not saying every police officer is discriminative. Im saying there is more hateful ppl than positive that’s all!

    1. Sadly, after watching a show on how Thunder Bay police investigate deaths, they imo are quite a disgrace. It’s time to show some respect and professionalism by doing your jobs properly. Where, when and why did the pride stop???
