This week: why things aren't okay in Thunder Bay. In the wake of two more Indigenous teens found dead in this northwestern Ontario city’s waterways, their home First Nations are sounding alarm bells, but local police maintain there is no crisis. And WTF is a MOU, and why should we care? We unpack the recent signing of a joint memorandum of understanding between the Canadian government and the Assembly of First Nations. Back again are Karyn Pugliese, APTN's Executive Director of News and Current Affairs with the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network and Lisa Girbav, a radio broadcaster from the Tsimshian territory and a student at UBC. // Our theme is 'nesting' by birocratic.

    Why can't they ship special trains to the communities and keep the children home. Just a temporary solution but better than getting the children killed. I went for an interview with Teach for Canada and was not impressed. Within their own communities the curriculum should reflect the culture. Making soial passes does not teach the students any academic course. It is irresponsibility. This is analogous to MMIW, just sending them away to places that they do nothing about sets them up for violence and possibly murder. They do not know how to be safe and they are too trusting so fall for non-Native or Native scams. JUST STOP THIS EXODUS from the Northern communities.
