    1. The sad part is, the Native on Native violence has become so common here, that’s the first thing the majority of everyone thinks now. The second sad part is, there’s no one to blame but yourselves.

  1. how much you wanna bet it was??? i think odds are on myside here…
    and dont bother calling me a racist, i am native and just hate the way the younger generations have become so violent..

  2. your assuming its native on native ……. thats whats wrong with this city ! to much assuming and finger pointing ……. because the suspect might have black hair ? maybe hes MEXICAN ? or dyed his hair ……. QUIT ASSUMING

    1. assumptions are often based in reality and experiences.

      if you don’t like the generalizations, then stop producing the predictable results.

  3. One more Canadian dead. Stop separating race or religion. We are all Canadian. If we can all stand up and say that out loud, then maybe the racism and discrimination will stop. Sad day for some family. My condolences.

  4. its hard not to assume when you follow the patterns, 99% of the time it is, this town has just turned into a bigger reserve where people act out and have no clue how to be a respectful person..

    and thanks for assumeing im a huge C**T, im not im just a realist and see the patterns,
    i wish these people could act differently, it makes us all look bad (natives) when they act as they do.

  5. all the cry babies that argue against it bieng native on native seem to have stopped now that its proven it was just like 99% of other crimes in thunder bay!!!!
    get a grip and take a look into our sad reality…this town is just a big reserve now and the poeple have no respect for anything!!!
    we should send the criminals back home, why let them stay here when they repeatedly commit crime, public drunkeness and other dispicaple actions!!
    send these scum bags back home!!

    1. haha sorry walter didnt mean for that name on here just popped up from one of our previous arguements, i think this is somehting we can agree on though….
