North Caribou Lake Friendship Agreement (VIDEO)

Thunder Bay Police Service representatives travelled to North Caribou Lake First Nation with representatives from the City of Thunder Bay, Fort William First Nation and Thunder Bay Police Service Board. The visit came nearly a year after those parties signed a Friendship Agreement with the leadership of North Caribou Lake.

Later in July we released a video on social media to give more context to the importance of the trip and the friendship agreement. 


Special Olypmic send off

Thunder Bay Police Service A/Dep-Chief Don Lewis, Beat Unit officers and Thunder Bay Corrections met with local Special Olympics Athletes to help send them off to the 2018 Special Olympics Canada National Summer Games. The athletes left Thunder Bay and headed to Antigonish, NS where they would compete for Team Ontario.


Day of Inclusion

Many Thunder Bay Police Service officers joined law enforcement officers across the country on July 21 by celebrating the Day of Inclusion for Special Olympics athletes. Participating officers showed their support by posing for photographs with the Day of Inclusion donut at participating Tim Hortons and using the #DayofInclusion hashtag on social media.


Hope in the Darkness

Members from the Thunder Bay Police Service joined other community partners and participated in the Hope in the Darkness Walk for Youth Mental Health.

The national walk was founded by Anishinaabe Police Sgt. Kevin Redsky, from Shoal Lake #40 First Nation. The walk began in Cape Spear and is heading to Winnipeg. When Sgt. Redsky brought his walk to Thunder Bay, participants walked down Arthur Street just before 9 a.m. and then met at Mount McKay that same afternoon.


Friendship Agreement Visit

As mentioned above, nearly a year ago a friendship agreement was signed between North Caribou Lake First Nation, the City of Thunder Bay, Fort William First Nation, the Thunder Bay Police Service and Thunder Bay Police Service Board. Early in July representatives of those parties met in North Caribou Lake to celebrate that agreement.

Prior to releasing the video explaining the context and importance of that agreement, the Thunder Bay Police Service released a series of photographs celebrating the North Caribou Lake First Nation trip.
