And regarding those numbers, Toronto finished with 84, Montreal with 41, and Calgary with only 30. Not sure about any of the other cities.

The Winnipeg Police Services' Homicide Unit is looking into an aggravated assault. Police say an unidentified youth was found unconscious early Friday morning in the 400 block of Kennedy. Constable Jeff Norman says it's not standard for the Homicide Unit to investigate in this type of situation, but adds they were called in because the boy was in critical condition when he went to hospital. Norman says the matter is being treated as suspicious, adding the boy was not suffering from any obvious injuries like gunshot or stab wounds. Police have charged a 22-year old man in connection with the theft of jewellery from a home in River Heights. Police say the suspect was driving a stolen vehicle when police caught up to him last month. That's when they found the jewellery. Police linked it to a residential robbery on Renfrew Street. Roderick Desmond Kyle Stranger has been charged with break, enter and theft, uttering threats, and breach of probation.
Police found crack cocaine, cash, and two firearms in the execution of a search warrant today in the 300 block of Inkster. 23-year old Marc Stephen Girouard faces numerous charges.
CJOB's Lorne Edwards reporting.

Ahh, I see Canada's heavy hitters in this catergory are quick out of the gates. For a mid-size centre, Winnipeg sure manages to keep pace with the big boys .

Strange, there was a rash of murders in early January 2007 as well.

The third for Toronto. Yet another innocent bystander shot in Riverdale of all places. A place mostly devoid of any serious gangs. Gun crime is a growing scourge in many Canadian cities it seems. You would think that the government would actually do something about it.
