St. John's is still sitting at two, which is more or less the average for most years.

Calgary had our 5th homicide last night, very good year so far. Hopefully it stays this way for a few years, this city was getting crazy for a few years there.

Wow, Calgary at 3x the size has about 1/3rd the number of homicides as Halifax so far this year. Thats not something you see too often..

There was a 27yr old stabbed in Windsor the other day, but he survived and is in stable condition so we are still going strong @ 23-24 months murder free in Windsor!

Close call though..

This really sucks but another is dead in Winnipeg after a stabbing in the North End. Police found him deceased on the side of the street. I checked after TrueViking said we were better off because no one has been stabbed thinking how ridiculous it would be if someone had in fact been shot to death. And look at that a man killed. Bad night for Winnipeg. This is Winnipeg's 32 Homicide. It is strange how the revival of the city really has no affect in stemming the heat in some neighbourhoods. The pride of some, it seems is not restored by Sports.

Here is a map to show how safe the city is. Outside of a few areas there is virtually no risk to anyone. The city itself homicide wise is not bad at all. Rather a few key areas need a big change.

The latest homicide is not included in the map.

Total (Pop. 17 400) = 8

Hopefully with 2 years murder free, some people will stop thinking that Windsor is somehow like Detroit because we share a border. Nothing could be further from the truth.

That's pretty incredible tbh. Windsor homicide detectives must be bored.

I bet they are. I think they should put those homicide detectives to work and start busting all the jacktards that keep spray painting 'THC' or 'PURE' all over the damned place.

I don't mind spray painting if it's artistic, what I can't stand is someone tagging something with something that looks shitty.

Get to it detectives! Detect something!

From what I've heard they've been able to put more police resources into investigating break-ins and auto theft and have put away a few people who were responsible for a lot of those around town....the rates of those offences have plummetted over the past year as well.

I don't know how to explain the lack of murders but I guess it's proof that high unemployment does not cause an increase in crime.

Ok, I found an article where the police attempt to explain it....

Windsor murder free for 2 years
Police credit gun control and drug unit for drop in homicide rate

CBC News
Sep 27, 2011

It's been two years since someone last committed homicide in Windsor, Ont. It's a stretch that impresses law enforcement officials on both sides of the border.

"It's a record that all of us right across the country envy, it's really quite extraordinary and I think it's something that the people of Windsor should be very, very proud of," Toronto police Chief Bill Blair said. "I use it as an example," Minneapolis police Chief Timothy Dolan said earlier in September. As of Sept. 1, Minneapolis had 22 homicides this year.

"The cities are so similar in so many ways, the policing is so similar — except for one factor, and that's that they have reasonable gun control up in Canada," Dolan said. Windsor police credit those gun control laws and their focus on local guns, gangs and drugs for keeping the homicide rate low.

"It's a long stretch, but to attribute it to any one thing, I think, would be really dangerous," Windsor police Chief Gary Smith said. "There's a lot of things that stop the homicide rate, but the biggest factor is how we police it, because if we can keep the guns off the streets then that also reduces the risks."

In 2006, Windsor created a guns, gangs and drugs unit, specifically designed to handle the cross-border drug trade. As of Sept. 1, Windsor police had seized 38 guns this year. They seized 42 in the previous two years combined.
The last killing in Windsor occurred Sept. 27, 2009. Mohamed Yousef, 23, was shot in the back after exiting a bar in the early morning hours. By comparison, Halifax had 28 homicides in the last two years, up to Sept. 1, 2011. Regina has had 15 homicides during the same time period. Detroit, which is just 1,200 metres from Windsor and has a population four times larger, has recorded 260 homicides to date in 2011.

Smith also credits what he calls the local "highly trained EMS and emergency room" staff for saving lives that otherwise may be lost in the aftermath of a violent confrontation." Smith said that during the last two years there have been "close calls" involving the victims of stabbings and beatings who were kept alive in time to be treated and saved at hospital.

Smith knows the homicide-free streak won't last forever and acknowledges there is an element of luck involved. And there are some academics who question the link between guns and violent crime rates, much less homicide. "It's a popular approach among law enforcement to go after the guns. It's fairly easy to do but there's almost no evidence that it has an impact on the violent crime rate," said David Martin, program director at Wayne State University's Center for Urban Studies. "In Windsor where homicides are a fairly rare event it would be very difficult to prove that that would be an effective strategy."

Studies suggest economic hardship is tied to a rise in violent crime. "Not surprisingly we do know that communities with higher rates of unemployment tend to have higher rates of crime, especially violent crime," said Martin. That makes Windsor's current streak even more impressive because Windsor had Canada's highest unemployment rate for 16 of the 24 months of this streak. Coincidently, one of Windsor's longest homicide-free streaks came during the heart of the Great Depression when the city lived through 1933 through 1935 without a homicide. That's still not the local record. Windsor went four years without a homicide, from 1918-1921. Windsor's 25-year average for homicides is 5.24. Over 50 years it's 4.78.
