In general is there any time of year when you notice that murders tend to spike in your city?

In Montreal it seems most murders take place in the middle of winter, and in the middle of summer. Spring and fall seem to have less homicides.

Calgary seems to have a spike in January most years, we're already at roughly 1/5 of our count from 2007, and I believe by the end of January 2007 we were at a similar count as well.

Man, I just got back from the gym, and while I was slogging away on the treadmill a familiar face caught my eye on one of the TV screens. It was a Global News story about Brad Worobeck who's been missing since Jan. 18th. I went to all levels of school with Brad and we played little league baseball on the same team back in the day. I hope to god he's not number 6.

Let's hope so.

Calgary's #5 this year now has an arrest, they arrested a 19 year old (at the time of arrest yesterday, today was actually his birthday which is confusing the news stations it seems) in connection as he was waiting on a plane to about to fly to Montreal.

. . . and it barely made the news, after the weather, traffic chaos due to the storm, that baby found abandoned somewhere east of Yonge St and even Brittany Spears making it to the nuthouse (at last). We're becoming immune (unless it's an innocent bystander caught in the crossfire). But -- the usual "he was known to the police" . . . meh, that's the way it goes.

Yeah, heard about that one. Her family is from Calgary so there was some mention in the local papers about it.

Mississauga recently got its 6th murder, putting its 2008 murder rate above most other Canadian cities, including Toronto...

Halifax had its first over the weekend. 17yo was arrested and charged shortly afterwards.

Does anyone remember when the stabbing in the Windsor Apartment happened? because the news said this was the first murder but that was sometime recent.

I think Montreal is at 7. If we continue like this, we will have less than 25 murders this year.
