Great piece of journalism

This was an excellent podcast. Shame on law enforcement, the judicial system, and city officials who exploited young kids instead of protecting them.

Important Podcast

I live in Minneapolis and frequently travel up north along Lake Superior so this podcast caught my eye as someone who has always wondered about Thunder Bay and also who has a lot of exposure to indigenous communities.

The reason I gave this podcast 4 stars is that I felt like the topic was a bit disorganized at times. It really feels like 5 topics instead of 1. The last two episodes were extremely powerful and the topic of indigenous communities in Canada NEEDS more coverage like this. Loved the host and his perspective. Wish there were more of it!

Wow

So well done - the narrative is amazing. And at the same time so disturbing and very sad. I just binge listened to this and can't believe the way these murders and other first nation crimes are just completely ignored in Thunder Bay. Thank you for bringing this to light to those of us in the US.

p.s. Anyone else disturbed by the former cop, Andre, who kept laughing when talking about murder, drugs or anything else serious and NOT funny.
