The evidence on the crime rate in Canada is out!
Statistics Canada reported yesterday that rate of crimes reported to Canadian police forces across the country reached its lowest level last year. That the incidents of serious crimes also dropped. By six per cent. That’s for most offences, including attempted murders, sexual assaults, major assaults, robberies, motor vehicle thefts and break-ins.
In a grotesque twist to this important revelation, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews tried to claim credit for the decline. The stats suggests that the Harper Conservatives’ Safe Streets and Communities Act (Bill C-10) is working, according the National Post.
