Thunder Bay police respond to allegations trainer was verbally assaulted in race-relations course


Allegations that a facilitator was verbally assaulted by police officers while conducting race-relations training in Thunder Bay are the result of a "misunderstanding", according to the police service.

"You can misread people's tone, attitude and body language in these kinds of sessions," said Chris Adams, executive officer with the Thunder Bay police service.

A training session with police officers in July was shut down after "things just got really bad" during a discussion on missing and murdered Indigenous women, the facilitator said.
