Indigenous leaders, city, express ‘heartfelt condolences’ after body of missing teen found in Thunder Bay

Minister of Indigenous Services Jane Philpott tweeted her condolences after it was confirmed that the body found on Sunday was Braiden Jacob.

(Deputy Grand Chief Derek)Fox said the leadership of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) is “appreciative” that the federal minister reached out, however, “at the same time, we are looking for action and we’re looking for solutions.”

“I think Minister Philpott reaching out is a start, but something needs to happen and it’s going to take a strong collaborative effort from everyone to seek solutions,” Fox said.

“I love our home city, this is where a lot of our people come to make a life for themselves, I love Thunder Bay … my family loves Thunder Bay but I don’t think anyone can pretend that things are fine.” – CBC News

I was wondering how long it would take before the finger pointing starts.   I thought maybe the blaming game would at least wait until the cause of death has been announced….if it will be announced.
