Police accused of verbal assault during training session on missing, murdered Indigenous women


Police officers in Thunder Bay, Ont., are being accused of verbally assaulting a facilitator who was delivering cross-cultural training on Indigenous issues, but a city official says it was all a misunderstanding.

"It just got really bad," said the facilitator, whom CBC News has agreed not to name because she fears that speaking out could have implications for her employment.

Thunder Bay trains local volunteers who are paid an honorarium to conduct training sessions for all city staff, including first responders such as police.
