THUNDER BAY – NEWS – The Regional Multicultural Youth Centre on East Victoria Avenue works with youth from across Thunder Bay. The group of youth were recently recognized for their hard work and dedication when they received the Respect Award.
On Wednesday however the Youth received something that doesn’t help them in their ongoing work. The door to the Youth Centre was smashed sometime in the evening.
Moffat Makuto states that this is the fourth time in the past three years that the door has been smashed. He is hoping that the Eye on the Street camera might shed some light on what happened.
The problem for the youth is that replacing the glass in the doorway takes away needed funds that they use for their projects.
There have been a rash of break-ins in the downtown Fort William Business District and area in the past month. Steeper’s Tea, The Guardian Angels, Silhoette Boutique, Unveiled Bridal Boutique, and Redd Boutique were all victims of break-ins.
Fortunately for the Regional Multicultural Youth Centre the incident was not a break-in, but the damage to the door which is expensive to fix is still an unwanted burden for the youth.
