According to Statistics Canada, in 2011 there were 598 homicides in the whole country. They broke down by method as follows:
Stabbings 35.4% (204)
Shootings 27.4% (158)
Beatings 21.7% (125)
Strangulation/Suffocation 6.9% (40)
Fire 3.6% (21)
Vehicular 2.6% (15)
Shaken Baby Syndrome 0.7% (4)
Poisoning 0.5% (3)
Other 1.2% (7)
Whats interesting is how the shooting homicide statistics break down. Again, from Statscan in 2011:
Handgun 65.7% (94)
Rifle/Shotgun 21% (30)
Sawed-off rifle or shotgun 10.5% (15)
Fully automatic firearm 1.4% (2)
Firearm-like weapons 1.4% (2)
In short, in Canada:
- you are far more likely to be stabbed to death than shot;
- you are far more likely to be beaten to death than shot with a handgun;
- you are far more likely to be strangled or suffocated than shot with a rifle or shotgun
And you are three times as likely to be killed by a family member, a friend or an acquaintance as by a complete stranger. Thats probably because we all know each other up here anyway, eh?
Most of the firearm homicides in Canada are committed with a handgun, despite handguns being tightly controlled since the 1930s; and according to police reports, 44% of firearm homicides are gang-related. So if somebody shoots you in Canada, chances are it will be with an illegal handgun. But on the up side, chances are itll be somebody you know.
STATSCAN FROM CANADA:
Homicide offences, number and rate, by province and territory
HERE’s DATA FROM THE FBI ON OUR END:
The reason for that is self-evident: Holder's people.
Factor them out (as well as the illegals from Mexico), and the South has overall crime numbers (and murder rates) matching those of, ahem, less diverse areas.
What about looking at ‘Rat controlled cities/counties/Congressional Districts vs. similar political affiliations of neighboring Canadian political entities?
