Investigators probing the Thunder Bay police for allegations of systemic racism are re-examining 30 death investigations plus nine cases of murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls that date to the 1990s.
The Thunder Bay Police Service (TBPS) has been under investigation by the Office of the Police Review Director since November. More than 100 Indigenous and non-Indigenous citizens of the northern city, police officers, organizations, Thunder Bay city councillors and others have been interviewed by the watchdog group under the direction of Gerry McNeilly.
