Thunder Bay – Weather – June is here. In the NHL last night, the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game Seven of their series. The wags out there are commenting it is Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s fault because he opened the golf courses last week.

There is a fog advisory in effect for

  • Marathon – Schreiber
  • Nipigon – Rossport

Environment Canada reports that areas of dense fog along the north shore of Lake Superior continue this morning. Conditions will improve later in the morning.

A sure sign that June is here can be seen in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. There are advisories for heat in effect. A building ridge of high pressure from the West coast will bring daytime highs in the thirties and overnight lows in the mid to upper teens to most of Southern Manitoba through the rest of the week. A reprieve from the hottest temperatures is expected this weekend, however, temperatures remain warm into early next week in the southeastern prairies.

Thoughts for the Day

This week, across Canada, Indigenous people are still absorbing or trying to understand the tragedy of the discovery of 215 bodies at the former Kamloops residential school. For many people, this event is triggering memories, sadness, grief and a flood of emotions.

If you are one of those people for whom the news is causing you issues or concern, the National Indian Residential Schools Crisis Line 1-866-925-4419 that provides immediate emotional support for former Indian Residential School students. Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Something that the rest of us can do, be kind, be understanding, be there, don’t try to dominate. This news, and the likely very real truth that Canadians will find more bodies at other residential schools is going to mean many Indigenous people are going to be hurting for sometime to come.

If the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated a need for kindness, this latest news shows that it is critically important especially now.

You can do this. Remember, “You’re Beautiful”.
