THUNDER BAY, ON ----  July 23, 2014  -----  Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) Grand Chief Harvey Yesno, on behalf of the
Grand Chief Harvey YesnoExecutive Council, issued the following statement following comments by City of Thunder
Bay Mayor Keith Hobbs in a recent media report regarding acts of violence within the City:

“We were very disappointed with the incorrect and inflammatory statements made
by Mayor Hobbs with respect to acts of violence within the City, including his
insinuation that we are unwilling to address this very serious issue. As a strong
corporate citizen NAN is concerned for the safety and security of all residents,
regardless of ethnicity. Where possible, we have worked with the City and other
organizations to address these issues and are proud to support the outstanding
work that First Nation police services are doing in cooperation with Thunder Bay
police, especially around the illegal and prescription drug trade. We will respectfully
and appropriately address our concerns to Mayor and Council.”


Nishnawbe Aski Nation is a political territorial organization representing 49 First Nation communities in James Bay Treaty No. 9 and Ontario portions of Treaty No. 5 – an area covering two thirds of the province of Ontario in Canada.
