    Surprised at the figures. I guess I didn't know Toronto was like that nowadays.

    Thanks, in part, to the evil street code there’s been 59 homicides so far in 2016 compared to 42 at this time last year. Toronto’s 59th murder, of an American tourist, happened on the same night as this violence — just north in Little Italy. So far this year Toronto has had 359 shootings compared to 248 at this time in 2015. It’s a 45% increase. We have seen 514 shooting victims, up 93% over last year’s 266.

    Of our homicides, 33 of them have been by gun — which is 12 more than this time last year or 57%. As for people wounded in shootings, we have now had 199 compared to 51 in 2015. That’s an almost 290% increase.

    It's been like that for AGES. A lot of gang related crime. When crack arrived in the 80s murder rates peaked. The only thing we have to be proud of is that it's still safer than American cities.
