During court, Rye asked “Can I ask a question” Justice of the Peace Marcel Donio refused and told him to ask his lawyer and not to ask in open court.

Further, during court, Lymfa appeared to be in shock that he was arrested. He claimed that he was “just driving a friend” and it appeared he came here from southern Ontario to give someone a ride home. He something like “Why are they charging me for something I didn’t do” and further pressed that other people were arrested and let go. He urges that he had no drugs. He said “This is crazy”. We will update this with more quotes from court later today.

The Crown opposed the release of all involved except McKay and cited all three grounds as concerns. McKay had the secondary and primary grounds cited as reasons for detention. Let’s learn what the three grounds means below.

Primary grounds means the Crown believes the likelihood of the accused to return for court is low. Secondary ground concerns means the Crown believes there is a substantial risk that the accused will either re-offend, become a public safety concern or both, should they be released. Tertiary grounds means that the Crown believes that should the accused be released, the public may lose confidence in the administration of justice.

All of the people arrested were ordered to remain in jail until at least Wednesday, November 20th, 2019, where they will have another chance at being released. They are being transported to the overcrowded and understaffed Thunder Bay District Jail where they will likely remain until they are inevitably released.

Numerous other people were in the trap house at the time and were released by police.

  1. Good job flushing out the rats and snakes TBPS. Keep the pressure on!

    Now for the limp wristed, weak kneed judges to do their jobs – properly.

  2. The Cycle that never ends. Toronto street gangs gets a slap on the wrist and a free out of jail card. Higher additions, dirty town, and crime because of these losers. The law system really needs to shape up, and get tougher. Everyone of them lock them up for a year.

    1. Always some needle-nosed phonics geek sitting at his keyboard using CAPS to illustrate his superior writing skills.

      If you can’t handle a few typing errors, go elsewhere for your news. It’s not like Pino has an army of staff and proof readers.

  3. Another fantastic job by Thunder Bay Police and O.P.P. Getting there turds out of circulation. Never ending for our hard working Police dept. Keep up the good work and people of Thunder Bay don’t hesitate to call about drug activity. It really helps and makes a difference

  4. Law enforcement are fighting a losing battle the way the courts let these scum bags out. It’s not just southern Ontario gangs operating in thunder bay. They had many years of free run to establish a huge clientele including business people and government officials. 0 accountability and tax free money for killing addicts and ruining their lives make it a very lucrative business. So they get their hands dirty once in awhile beating an addict or fellow gang member , nobody notices. They blame the addict and nobody else. Get onboard and punish these dirt bags like the US does.

  5. Pino you are awesome reporting stuff? we do not see I AM PROUD OF YOU AND WHAT YOU DO
    AND A VERY BIG THANK YOU FOR YOUR EFORT I PUT SPELLING ERROR IN ON PURPOSE FOR THE WHINERS YOU REALLY SHOW ALL OF US THAT ARE CONCERNED WHAT IS HAPPENING IN T BAY THANK YOU SO MUCH GREAT JOB

  6. What kind of language is that Pino? get off my dick??? You of all people should mind your manners, and learn to engage your brain before your tongue .by the jesus
