REPORT: Serious Crimes Are Increasing Under The Trudeau Government

The crime severity index is on the rise.

The severity of crime in Canada is increasing under the Trudeau government.

The Crime Severity Index is a way to measure how serious reported crimes are. This can give a better idea of how bad crime really is, since the traditional crime rate may show a decrease in crime, but that decrease could be because there were fewer non-serious crimes, while more serious crimes could have increased.

And now, as the Trudeau government continues to take a softer (AKA weaker) approach to the ‘justice’ system, and as politically-correct mayors take crime-fighting tools away from the police, severe crime is rising in our country:

Take a look at the chart below from Stats Canada:

The numbers are quite clear: Violent crime is on the rise as the Trudeau government remains in power.

The Conservatives need to make this into an election issue. We are seeing across Canada – including in Canada’s largest city – that violence and danger is rising.

A mix of political-correctness, weakening of the laws, Islamist terrorism (which the corrupt elites refuse to acknowledge), is contributing to the crime surge, and we need leaders who are willing to crack down, toughen up the laws, and keep our communities safe.
