Two People Shot Dead In Toronto Over The Weekend

Surge of violence continues.

Violence continues spreading in the Greater Toronto Area.

In just the past week and a half, 25 people have been shot in the city.

Two more people were shot dead over the weekend.

A man was shot and killed in Vaughan, having checked himself into hospital with a gunshot wound and later dying.

In East York, a man was shot and killed near a school on Wakunda Place.

While shooting deaths in Toronto are down from 2018 at this time (19 vs 30), that seems to be a matter of random chance, since the total number of shootings are up from the same time last year (390 vs 329).

Toronto is on pace for one of the most violent years in regards to shootings.

And while politicians focus on ‘gun laws,’ it turns out that it’s gang crime that is causing the surge of violence, and we all know that gangs aren’t following the gun laws. With many guns illegally entering Canada along our border with the US, the same politicians who talk about further imposing restrictions on law-abiding gun owners never seem to talk about strengthening and securing our border or cracking down on gangs.

In Toronto, actually the whole of Ontario, It would or could be simple to fix the whole problem. The police work hard putting their lives in danger to find and arrest violent criminals, then our court systems just lets them back out on bail, and the police are left with right now over 326 criminals to watch over, and find them yet again with guns while on bail, never mind all the other criminals “out on bail” waiting for their court cases to come up and if they don’t come up in a timely manner they are no longer on… Read more »

The evolution of the violent state of affairs in Toronto has its genesis in the Liberal immigration, education and justice policies over the past two generations. Liberals own most of this mess, with some support from time to time by red Conservatives.

A total lack of desire by the political establishment to clean up this mess. Bad immigration policies allowing criminal elements to enter and stay in this country. Create a wanted list and pass along to a special forces team with the specific mandate find and apprehend. Once caught remove right to bail until courts make decision as to guilty vs innocent. If guilty remove from society with consideration of returning death penalty..

When you have a government with an ex-chief of police of Toronto tasked with ‘taking care’ of crime and criminal activities who, while Chief in Toronto was want to say: “These gangs and drugs and guns are causing us troubles and the guns have to go” — or words closely mirroring that statement, it appears somewhat odd. If the gangs and drugs and guns were the problem, logic would dictate that the reason for the guns — the drugs and gangs — would be the focus of any attempt to correct the situation. And now, as a Minister in the… Read more »
