Ottawa may have had one or two more this evening. Probably at least one.

Low numbers for Montreal, high numbers for Ottawa. This has been a trend for the last 3-4 years now. This is starting to be a bit of a concern in Ottawa since the shootings occur more frequently than ever before.

Actually, very few people in Ottawa seem to think that that's the case.

I've read in the newspapers that the residents of some neighbourhoods are concerned. Not in the sense that they fear that might be shot if they go out at night, but in the sense that more people seem to be carrying firearms than before and that's not a reassuring thought.

I know in some areas people are more on edge but I don't feel a broad sense of urgency from Ottawans, the media, their elected officials or even (honestly) the police.

I started this thread on the Ottawa forum a few months ago: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...ighlight=crime

Most posters told me to take a hike, and the thread died.

Ironically, the murder of the lady in the Christian Science reading room *is* a typical Ottawa murder. Kind of the freakish outlier murder that you only have a one in a million chance of being a victim of. Ottawa would normally have a few of these a year, and then you add in domestic dispute murders, and a few killings among the criminal element, and you typically would end up with between 8 and 15 most years.

What's not typical right now is gangster types killing each other with a greater regularity.

I really hope I am wrong but with all the shooting going on it may only be a question of time before someone totally innocent gets killed by a stray bullet.

Ottawa Police Chief says gun violence priority number 1 for his force (CTV Ottawa, Jan 26/18)

https://ottawa.ctvnews.ca/ottawa-pol...orce-1.3777560

One thing that has not been clear (to me anyway) is the extent to which the more recent shootings have been linked to the gang "war" that accounted for a number of shootings at the beginning of the year. I don't think the local media have done enough follow-up, in terms of reporting on arrests and the reasons for the shootings.

After several years of successive "record" years for the number of shootings...

Weird, because "the Ottawa gangs" has been a serious, well known and widely discussed topic in Thunder Bay. They're one of the biggest sources of drugs and weapons in the city, and they're nasty. They literally kidnap and torture people, and they've killed people in broad daylight in middle class neighbourhoods.

This is largely overshadowed by how inept and racist our police can often be, but it's definitely a number 2 issue.

As a supporter of the free market, I think it's time to privatize the police, stop subsidizing the police industry/cartel. Look at police mistakes not being able to recognize the homicides of Barry Sherman and his wife and many other cases across Ontario. It's time end the monopolies that these police forces and allow some competition. The private sector would be able to serve the public more effectively and at a lower cost.

It would be the same officers.

Region of Waterloo has had its second homicide of the year - a man in his sixties found at a Kitchener townhouse complex with "obvious signs of trauma".
