As well there were three sexual assaults, and twenty-one assaults.

The Festive Ride program was far different in 2014 with far smaller check-stops, spread out in different places than usual.

Thunder Bay Police report, ”

Officers working the R.I.D.E. program last night report that traffic was rather slow. The breeze made them very grateful for warm boots, gloves (and the thermal underwear that Santa brought).

R.I.D.E. officers say that there were “lotsa mammas in pajamas” and remarked that one older gentleman looked like he had a pajama suit under his over-coat and was rather stylishly dressed.

Three people were arrested: one for being a suspended driver, one for missing an appointment with a Judge, and one – you guessed it – for impaired driving.

The young lady arrested for the outstanding warrant for the missed court matter was checked into one of our junior suites, and the impaired driver had the pleasure of being both the last of 2014 AND the first of 2015.
