    In stories like this, it is easy to forget how the parents, family and friends are impacted. Jordan, is from Webequie First Nation. Webequie is located on the northern peninsula of Eastwood Island on the Winisk Lake, 540 kilometers north of the city of Thunder Bay, or 450 kilometers north of the town of Sioux Lookout. Access is only by air or a seasonal winter road. There is no year-round road access. The nearest year-round road access is the town of Pickle Lake, 250 km to the southwest, or the town of Nakina, 320 km to the southeast. Charter air service to Webequie is available from both of these communities.


    Like many young people from First Nations communities, Jordan is in Thunder Bay to complete his high school education.

    Please Help Find Jordan Wabass

    [snip]

    "I'm no longer going to be patient, or polite. I'm getting past frustrated for the family and community members who are desperately hoping that Jordan is alive somewhere. He's a good kid. He likes hockey. He wants to have a good education. That's why he came south, to have better opportunities. He's big for his age, and may look older, except when he smiles. Then he's just a sweet, shy kid. He's good with digital arts. One of his pieces is going to be in a picture book- a companion piece to a documentary that was shot about him and his fellow students and their struggles to get past the challenges they face in a remote community. I'm shouting out these details so that he has a face for the people in the South who don't know him. If they knew him, they'd be looking in bus and train stations in Toronto, Winnipeg, Timmins. They'd be talking about him. They'd be searching in sub zero temperature in the back alleys, too."

    Family and Friends and Community Coming together for Jordan Wabasse

    http://netnewsledger.com/?p=5993

    Monday, February 21, 2011

    THUNDER BAY – Maybe it is just the distance? Maybe it is because every news day is just another really busy day, but a new friend of mine, Cathy Elliott from Toronto is left wondering why none of the major media in Toronto have covered the story. The story is a missing Aboriginal teenager, Jordan Wabasse from Webiquie First Nation in Northwestern Ontario.
