Both cases were part of the inquiry of the Coroner investigating the death of & # 39; seven & # 39; people in Thunder Bay. Five of the deaths were the result of & # 39; residues in waterways of & # 39; Thunder Bay.

The inquiry has raised many questions about how the Thunder Bay police dealt with the death of young investigations.

In fact, the Thunder Bay police action in cases involving the deaths of & # 39; Indigenous people were questioned for more than 20 years.

In 1994, a group called the Committee Reports & # 39; Future compiled a list of & # 39; "More than 30 cases where police Thunder Bay was treated with & # 39; unfair way to people Aboriginal and neglected about the violent death investigations & # 39; Aboriginal people", according to a report in Thunder Bay Post at the time.

The organization & # 39; heads & # 39; Ontario, which represents Indigenous interests across the province, called for an investigation into the findings of the committee by the Commission Ontario for Human Rights, Secretariat Against Racism of & # 39; Ontario and Office Commissioner for Police Complaints.

Philip Edwards, who was on the Board of Police Services & # 39; Thunder Bay as a nominee of the province and has been involved in the collection of the findings, told CBC News this week that nothing it came out.

"For the average indigenous people, nothing has changed. Created in worse & # 39; a lot of ways," he said.

The police & # 39; Thunder Bay to investigate the death of & # 39; Gliddy never managed to follow if there was truth in the human statement on the group & # 39; people have approached him as he left, according to the case file.

"I came into this concern there is something wrong," said Thea Gliddy. "I'm still struggling to this day. Mwiegħedha at the prison bill, I know wiegħedha x & # 39; was it really happened."
