First Nations leaders demand answers to video that appears to show Thunder Bay police officer striking teen

Indigenous leaders are demanding answers about what happened in a video that appears to show a Thunder Bay, Ont. police officer hitting a First Nations teenager who is strapped to a stretcher, as the local force says it's investigating.

"We are outraged by the actions of the officer depicted in this video. We do not know all of the details that led to this incident, but there is simply no justification for such violent and callous treatment of a youth in such a defenceless position," Alvin Fiddler, grand chief of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) which represents 49 First Nations in Northern Ontario, said in a statement on Sunday.
