Police violence, racism must stop, say demonstrators who forced meeting with police in Thunder Bay, Ont.

 

August 5, 2020



Demonstrators with a group called 'Not One More Death' are calling for an end to police brutality and more public accountability from the Thunder Bay Police Service.

A group of about a dozen people gathered outside police headquarters on Balmoral Street on Tuesday but postponed their plans to plant a tree, without a permit, after a First Nations elder from the group met privately with the First Nations elder from the police service and the police board chair.

"They told us to give them a chance," said Ma-Nee Chacaby, the elder with the group. "But if nothing happens, we're going to plant a forest."
