There is a petition to upgrade the charges of aggravated assault to something more serious for Brayden Bushby, the 18-year-old Thunder Bay youth who allegedly threw a trailer hitch that hit Barbara Kentner in January.

The attack caused Kentner serious internal injury which after months of pain, suffering and hospitalization, resulted in her death in July. This sparked the creation of a petition, online at www.change.org, which has more than 37,000 supporters. It has even been translated into French to reach a broader audience.
