(THUNDER BAY, ONT) – A crowd of violence has allegedly erupted outside of Newfie’s pub, yet again. The scene on the south-side of town has become a familiar one, with loiterers and ruckus.
A REAL Concerned Citizen, who wishes to remain anonymous to protect their identity since they work in the area, has contacted us to let us know about the issue.
“I was getting hemp coffee at the hub and I went outside and I legit heard the first punch connect, it was wild, the guy who got kicked in the head was like throwing people around and shit and we tried to leave but the street was covered in people,” Says our eyewitness.
“They didn’t even seem to notice there was a car, once he got kicked in the face people stopped lol , I work at vicvill so it didn’t really phase me but my roommate was freaking out, she was driving, it’s scary, to be honest, and fights like that happen every day, can’t even get a coffee without seeing someone get stomped in the face”
It seems that the ongoing violence in the south downtown core may be getting out of hand. There are two videos below showing the situation that unfolded today.
Please leave suggestions in the comments on what can be done to turn our south downtown core around. The infrastructure and business owners are beautiful and have lots of potential, but the ongoing violence may shy some people away.
