Put "Eye in the Sky" to watch over the River of Tears

This petition had 44 supporters

Given the recent drownings in Thunder Bay's Neebing McIntyre floodway, aka the River of Tears; we would like to have the Eye in the Sky placed along the River of Tears. People, mainly Indigenous youth, have been found in these waters.

What is causing these deaths? We don't know, but we do feel these deaths are not your typical "drownings". It is shocking that not only one, but seven youth lost their lives to "drowning", when most of them lived near lakes and rivers. We as concerned Indigenous citizens of Thunder Bay believe that this would benefit everyone and ensure safety for all youths as well as adults.
