(THUNDER BAY, ON) – It’s no secret, no matter how many people in power try to hide it, that the Thunder Centre area is plagued with drunken stupidity.
Drunken lurkers/beggars often harass people for money and/or their alcohol purchase all throughout the stores in the area. Its not breaking news that people are drinking beside the river and surrounding areas. What leaves many citizens confused is why this behaviour is tolerated, especially since people are constantly being rescued after falling into the river with some of them dying from such incidents.
Our anonymous tipster tells us “Driving down Simpson St at 2 PM today July 19 2019 right by the thunder centre by river under the trees and I looked to my right and this what I see..some afternoon loving. This is disgusting!!!”
Anonymous continues “There are children around and elderly and this what they see. OMG…get a room..or was the person offering a tetra pack of Kelly’s once they were done?? Unbelievable people need to do this in public!!”
Reasonable members of the public are left wondering why the issue of people drinking in public around this area is not being directly addressed by the city. The abuse of alcohol and violent acts are almost certainly a daily occurrene in the area.
Sex acts in public are a violation of the criminal code of Canada. We are The REAL Concerned Citizens of Thunder Bay, that being said, children and the general public being exposed to this is a valid concern. Keep sending in your concerns, citizens.
When will someone in a position of power call for action on this out of control situation?
