“Sometimes civic leadership can surprise you. It can come from parts of society you’d never expect to be the first to step forward and lend a hand.

In Thunder Bay, a city whose leadership has complained it is under siege from the national media after the suspicious deaths of First Nations youths in the city’s rivers, after a provincial body found systemic racism existed in the police force, after the books and the podcasts and even after the opening of a Globe and Mail bureau to chronicle it all, one organization has stood out from the rest.”
