Thunder Bay Police are investigating a number of complaints regarding threats involving demonstrators on the city’s south side.

The service says it respects the right to demonstrate and protest peacefully, however when behavior becomes criminal they will investigate and when appropriate lay charges.

Groups have been demonstrating on Arthur Street West near Movati Athletic regarding policy’s at the gym over the past several weeks.

This comes following calls into the Acadia Newsroom yesterday concerning anti-LGBT demonstrators set up near Pope John Paul II School allegedly targeting students as they boarded buses.

During demonstrations police say they will work to ensure the entire community is safe from threats, assaults, intimidation and the inciting of hate or violence.

Anyone who may have been a victim of a crime is asked to come forward and file a report with police by either contacting the service’s non-emergency line at 807-684-1200 or in person at the Balmoral Street headquarters.
