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.

  1. what do you expect from a soft on crime government like the Liberals. They give more support and protection to the criminals than the victims.

  2. We are fifty (50) judges short, not being replaced, so a lot of crime just is let go, or cannot get to court in a timely manner so also let go.
    We had secular law here for the most part (old English common law, and in Quebec civil law) but Liberals/NDP have been weakening our laws and punishments, and our police and justice system to try and put human rights in place (really bad system) and now ? they threaten us with religious laws like Sharia law? which they criticize so badly when used in other countries, but seem to want to put it on Canadians (M103) so our whole what was good law and order system has been failing and mixed up by the Lieberal/NDP, like not enforcing our border laws is a good example of what is being done to us, cracking down on law abiding citizens while letting criminals go, this is another great way to destroy our country.

  3. In Alberta rural crime has skyrocketed much more than these figures state. The home defender is charged in Canada because we have no castle laws and if they use a weapon to defend themselves they are charged with more serious offenses than the perpetrator. The problems in this country run deep and actually encourage this type of activity. There is an old saying “better to be judged by twelve than carried by six”. Yep, and he won’t be stealing anything else either. One has to assume the criminal will escalate any confrontation. Ottawa, you listening? Rural Canadians know that when seconds count, the police are only hours away. Where is our backup? Self defense is not a crime. Especially with uncontrolled borders. The illegal migrants have no respect for our laws and will eventually come a knocking at your home. In retrospect I guess they already have.

  4. Trudeau still refuses to place the safety and security of all Canadians ahead of his own socialist ideology.While Trudeau projects a false image of being compassionate and loving towards criminals, especially the violent ones; it sends a clear signal, that Trudeau fails to understand. That when criminals see a leader telling them not to worry about being prosecuted, they in turn just increase the level of criminality, knowing they will just get a slap on the wrist, if they get anything at all in the way of punishment.
    Canadians won’t stand for this and will make him pay the price at the polls come next year. Any public leader in politics that fails to defend and protect the public, deserves to be prosecuted and jailed, not rewarded with another term in office. Vote the corrupt Trudeau out of office in 2019.
