Gang violence surges.
Canada’s homicide rate has surged, reaching a ten-year high.
There are 1.8 homicide victims for every 100,000 Canadians, the highest rate since the year 2009.
In 2017, there were 660 homicides in the country.
Gun killings have surged, but contrary to the message being pushed by the corrupt elites, those killings were not committed by law-abiding Canadian gun owners.
Instead, those killings were largely gang-related.
In 2015, homicides by gang-related gun violence were 12% of all homicides. In 2017, gang-related shootings increased to 21% of all homicides.
Toronto had the most gun homicides, but the biggest surge in the overall homicide rate came in B.C., where the rate was up 32%.
Additionally, the number of shootings that featured a rifle or shotgun continued to decline, while gang-related shootings with illegal handguns surged. Of course, a handgun ban would do nothing to stop that, since criminals don’t follow the gun laws anyway.
And it’s not just homicides that are up. Robbery, aggravated assault, rape, and attempted murder are all increasing.
