Thunder Bay's Black Path is being singled out as being unsafe. 17 year old Cassandra Spence has collected 500 signatures on a petition calling for the path to be lit and monitored by security cameras. Spence will be presenting the petition to council on Monday. The McIntyre area walkway runs through Castlegreen, McVicars Creek and continues behind the Landmark Inn. Spence says people don't feel safe using the large trail at night. The pathway was the site of a murder last fall.
The OPP have arrested two people on trafficking charges after pulling over a vehicle in Emo. Members of the Community Drug Action team stopped the vehicle yesterday on Highway 11. Officers seized over five pounds of marijuana. The drugs have a street value of about five thousand dollars.
