Open Letter to Toronto Haters

Toronto Sun, T.O. posts lowest crime rate:
Toronto the Good hasn't gone away.

Statistics Canada -- using a new crime severity index developed with help from police, justice officials and academics -- reports Toronto had the lowest ranking out of the 27 metropolitan areas in the country in 2007.

That year, Toronto also had the lowest rate of police-reported crimes for cities across the land, with 4,278 offences called in to cops per 100,000 of population.

Hogtown's grades are worse when it comes to violent crime but still below the national average and far less than the highest crime cities in the country, which include Regina, Saskatoon and Winnipeg.
I asked some folks previously to back that tractor up. I wonder if they will.

There are 27 metropolitan areas in this country? (Spoken like a true Toronto snob, I suppose.)

Too bad it's the number of small crimes that went down, the homicides, rapes, robberies, that number stayed the same. And will probably stay the same forever, nothing can be done about it. There always will be a small percentage of people who are just different (or at least they think they are).

Take care, Elli
