THUNDER BAY – The strike at the Port Arthur Medical Clinic has been going on for months. The doctors have stepped away from the bargaining table with the workers. As the efforts to bring the doctors back to the bargaining table continue, there has been a lot of action going on at the clinic.
These two incidents reported by Thunder Bay Police have happened on Friday.
Patrol officers responded to an alarm at the Port Arthur Clinic at 5:40 a.m. on August 10, 2018.
Upon arrival the officers located an insecure door and observed that the electrical box had been tampered with causing a loss of power to the clinic. It is unknown if the building was entered and damage was located to the exterior of the building.
On Tuesday August 7, 2018 at 11:50 am, a male was leaving the Port Arthur Clinic with his daughter when a female picket stood in front of his car and asked to speak to him. The male refused and was then approached by a male on the picket line and struck in the face.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male who is 5’10” and 190 lbs. with shorter brown hair. He was wearing white shorts and a red t-shirt.
Police are looking to speak to any witnesses to this altercation. Anyone with information is asked to call the police at 684-1200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.P3tips.com.
