  1. soooo …. whats the nationality of the other two? might as well put them in the discription too , otherwise people might think sault star is racist for only pointing out “aboriginal” people in stories. this is not the first time either. how bout the italians or africans or caucasian or irish or asian ……..

  2. Lived in that immediate area for a year, about 3 doors down, and was not particularly worried at any time. If you aren’t into that stuff you pretty safe. It is definitely a tough area, tho.. Not far from the new Cop Shop so I guess that’s not worrying anybody…;).
