Timmins is #56. The most dangerous city in Ontario!! (Okay Temiskaming Shores is more dangerous but it's not really a city)

I am not at all surprised about Timmins. We have a huge police presence with our city police and OPP and a high percentage of people here have criminal records.

North Battleford, Sask is my vote. Gun shots ring out in the streets almost every night in a shit town of 13,000. RCMP can't keep track.

I've only ever driven through N. Battleford on the 16 which sort of goes along the south edge of town. From the highway, it's a pretty-looking town set amidst some hills, with a standard-looking highway commercial strip. I had no idea it had such major problems... it's not obvious from driving through that there are such problems there as the ones profiled in the recent Maclean's story. I would not expect that of a quiet-looking town basically in the middle of farm country.

But Victoria is ranked 30th out of 229. Make sure you don't leave Colville!

Calgary came out at #93 overall, #102 for violent crime. Okotoks meanwhile came out at #129 over all, and #164 for violent crime.....If only Okotoks was joined to Calgary we would have a bigger population....and much less crime overall!

Probably because they vote Conservative? Any other reason would not be PC.

Of the 20 safest municipalities in Canada, 5 of them are in the Windsor metro area. Yet the 'most dangerous' place in the U.S. is just across the river. Hard to figure all of this out.

With 13 reservations surrounding the town, the aboriginal crime rate has gotten out of control. People here refer to it as Little Detroit.

Things that are surprising:

1.1 times the national average homicide rate
1.3 times the national average assault rate
1.2 times the national average sexual assault rate
2.6 times the national average firearms offense rate
1.5 times the national average robbery rate
1.4 times the national break & enter rate
2.0 times the national impaired driving rate

I'm usually one to laugh at the "this place ain't fit anymore" folks, but we low-key have begun going over the national average on a lot of violent crime measures for multiple years.

Maybe the first place to look: All other drug offense charges are way below the national average. However we know there's a drug problem. Police aren't doing near good enough job at taming the drug issues in the city.

Unless you're talking about giving everyone SWAT training, arming the public will do very little to control a mass shooting. The citizen who responds and shoots the shooter could easily accidentally hit the wrong person, leading others to think the citizen IS the shooter (or they could successfully hit the shooter and the same thing happens), causing them to get shot, or someone next to them to get shot.. and before you know it everyone is shooting everyone.

FFS, there is nothing to fear in the western areas of Canada. Yes there are spots that if you are an idiot you will get jacked. But if you just mind your own business and be aware of your surroundings everything will be just fine.
