Sault Ste. Marie Police Service has agreed to launch an investigation into this week’s early-morning torching of Black Lives Matter signs at Algoma University.

The commitment was made Wednesday by Police Chief Hugh Stevenson after a meeting with representatives of Algoma University Students’ Union (AUSU) and the African Caribbean Canadian Association of Northern Ontario (ACCANO).

Chief Stevenson reached out to the two groups after SooToday reported a half-dozen Black Lives Matter signs were set fire around 1 a.m. Monday on the university’s front lawn.
