Toronto is Canada’s Detroit.

Only people still live there. My guess is that Canada is gun-running through the US. What a killer combination to get guns outlawed in both places by socialist elites !

Great quote from the comments section of the article:
“Banning all guns is like castrating yourself because your neighbor has too many children”

Gang activity does tend to get in more with some foreign cultures.

Map racial/ethnic makeup and overlay the crime maps.

Sha Zaaam!

Can you say “Correlation”?

time maps would make it even more clear to head-buried nonbelievers.

“”Community-based interventions involving different social service providers, educators and community members can also play a significant role,” he said.”


Sure,the touchy feely approach works well for gang members-———and ISIS members just need jobs./s

Hmmmmmmm.....I wonder how in the world this can happen.

Whatever could it be?

These “leaders” who believe a man in a dress is a woman cuz “science” just can’t seem to figure out what the problem is.

Here’s a clue: imports.

Point A: Our illegals are moving to Canada because of Trump.
Point B: Canada’s violent crime is increasing rapidly, while ours is falling.

Conclusion: Diversity is our strength. We need more sanctuary cities and sanctuary states. Don’t build the Wall!

Nah, two or three new “common sense” gun laws ought to clean up that little problem.

Guns are legal in Canada but I think they are heavily restricted, especially in cities. What Canada lacked was large numbers of under-represented minorities. That has started to change as immigration increases. Canada is still very much a white nation with Asians being the largest minority group at 10%.
