Anyone with even a modicum of intelligence knows that the claim he made (less than 10 shootings in the city of Montreal all year) cannot possibly be true. There's been 8 murders, and the number of shootings is always several times the number of murders.
Besides, I'm not the one who started the idiotic Toronto-Montreal comparisons. He did by responding to me saying that Toronto's had 80 shootings this year. If you don't believe me, just read the posts in order. I didn't say anything about Montreal prior to that. I said that Toronto has 80 shootings this year. He replied that that's "a lot" (which is not true, compare it to other N.A. cities of similar population), and made the claim that Montreal probably has less than 10. I'm not even the one who brought up the comparison to begin with.
