(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The City of Thunder Bay has issued a statement about how they have decided not to accept anymore forest fire evacuees citing over worked emergency services. The idea is that the safety of the city would be compromised if we took in anymore than the 1000 evacuees that ended up here.
Today was no different.
21-year-old Shaundine Turtle, an evacuee from Pikangikum, was arrested by officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service after allegations were made of a woman getting assaulted. Turtle was charged with the following charges after allegedly assaulting a woman he was court ordered not to be around.

  • Assault on a woman.
  • Breaching bail conditions (undertaking) do not contact a certain woman.

Turtle appeared in a Thunder Bay bail court via video from the TBPS station this morning. Overseeing the matters during court was Justice of the Peace Denette Ellard, Crown Attorney VanKessel and duty counsel.
Turtle was denied bail today and will remain in jail until at least his Friday bail hearing. He is escorted back to the cells at TBPS where he will wait to be shipped off to the overcrowded and understaffed Thunder Bay District Jail A.K.A. “The Algoma Bed & Breakfast”.

  1. Turtles gone mad!
    Seems when some of them come to big smoke, they can’t resist getting into trouble with the law. Rest assured the vast majority of others from Pikangikum are well behaved. These unruly Turtles are likely the scourge of the reserve.

  2. What’s with the people from “Pikangikum”.
    They are acting like students during Spring Break.
    Remember the Shoppers Drug Mart shoplifting episode where the excuse was that the boy had never been to the city before. So back at the reserves it is alright to steal from each other and get intoxicated & assault others in the community.
    I know that is not true but these individuals are ambassadors of their reserves and these incidents paint a poor picture of the whole native community.
    There are bad people in every culture but the First Nations
    imagine get tarnished especially when a group of evacuees are in the city and they create trouble.

  3. Apparently a LOT of these guys like roughing up their woman. What’s their excuse for that? The white bastard made them do it? Or is it all because of the fire water? Reserves need to to scrapped! They don’t live off the land, they get KFC flown inn for God sake. It’s time these people move! They don’t take care of their water treatment plants, garbage, fire services. I say pull the plug. People want to end segregation? Integrate them! Enough is enough, it time they start acting and WORKING like equals! Enough of the hand outs, enough of the crap because everyone knows it’s time to move into the 21st century, none of them are living off the land, they are living off government cheese and clearly doing whatever they want up there.

    1. “Government cheese” – I love it. Chris Farley at his best.
      I fully agree though. Most reserves are dead ends and a smart govt would call a halt to them. However, bleeding heart liberals have been kowtowing to FN people for votes.
      Anyone with half a brain knows that the norther reserves especially, are nothing more than breeding grounds for discontent and animosity toward main stream Canadian society. Especially their youth who’ve adopted this ridiculous, if not humorous “thug life – gangsta” mentality. Wannabe gangsta punks who think abusing alcohol/drugs and killing each other is a way of life.
      There are truly serious social issues in the northern reserves that will never be addressed by FN leadership nor the spineless Liberals.. It will take strong federal govt with the vision and will to dismantle those cess pools and begin the long painful process of integrating FN people into society. In the meantime it will be the same old same old. Gladue will be very, very busy.

  4. WHAT if the tables were turned and you were forced to a reserve (white man)..Our government is to blame…no questions asked..Who would you be know.?…I wish people like you with your narrow minds had to go to residential schools and be subjected to even a small portion if the atrocities that the white man put them through.. The government still is excluding to own the REAL fact that this not a quick fix…All I have to say is that people like you who grew up with all the opportunities within a hop skip an jump and access to all tools to things some first nations people and the youth never even can comprehend. You would think that people with more would help or at least not put others down less fortunate and going through a difficult circumstnce out of their control….Please if you have nothing nice to say keep shitty ass comments to yourself…Try giving a helping hand…thx
