Shootings happen with a lot more frequency in Toronto now, it's an issue in the less high profile areas of town and not just the high profile area of town. Whether it's 8 lives affected or 1, all lives should be treated with the same importance shouldn't they?

True. All he is saying is that, when it's more then 4 people that are affected, it will make national news, no matter where it is.. Doesn't matter if it's in Jade & Finch or if it's in the mall, it will make the news.

Agreed. Very surprised he turned himself in. If it's gang related, I don't really see why the person would turn themselves in.. Bizarre.

So glad the police arrested this SOB. It just goes to prove that you can never escape from the law.

That was my first thought... All I can think is that he's hoping for sympathy or a lighter sentence by this...


Read an interesting article on cp24 website - the writer interviewed several older gang members and even they were beside themselves regarding the younger generation and their lack of respect and morals.

IMO, this 'me' generation has, and will continue to bring down society. Its disgusting.

the court houses (old city hall) are literally at the backdoor from the eaton center across the street - a little stroll past the old trinity church (halfway house aka the weed corner)

I'm sorry to hear about this guys, I went to Toronto in the winter during a stay with some family friends in Buffalo. We went to the HHOF and had a great day, the city was a thing of beauty. I didn't realize Toronto had gang problems, being from somewhere like Long Island you kind of look at Canada as a peaceful place where stuff like this doesn't happen often. I'm glad they got the guy who did this.

I read that the Toronto murder rate is 1.59 per 100,000 people, compared to 60 for New Orleans.

Looks like you are correct (or close enough).

Shooting occurrences are way up this year so far, unfortunately.


But to put things into perspective...

Chicago - Population - 2,695,598 -- Homicides in 2011 - 440
Toronto - Population - 2,615,060 -- Homicides in 2011 - 46

There were only 76 homicides in the entire GTA (population 5,583,064) in 2011. Just have to hope this shooting trend doesn't continue this year.

Not me?

I was born in '87 and regrettably, its my generation that seems to be the problem.


I never thought much when my grandpa would say 'kids these days'.. Over the past few years its become clear that he saw it coming, as I'm sure many others did.

Every generation says that about the current or younger generation.

Heck even famous philosopher Socrates had a quote about it:

"“Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.” "

There has never been a better time to be alive than now. You need some perspective.

Sad event. My heart goes out to the vicitms and their loved ones. This does not deter me from wanting to visit the city one day, catch a game and visit the NHL Hall of Fame. Prior to this, I have heard nothing but good things about the city.

Toronto (and the GTA) is a beautiful place with weeks and weeks worth of activities and sights to see. Don't let this scare you away as Toronto is still one of the safest large cities in North America if not the World.

Words cant describe how i feel for the people injured by this sick person. Really hope that everyone makes a full recovery. Sad that an innocent young boy takes a bullet to the head. Can only imagine the nightmare his parents are going through. From what i hear jail isn't nice to those who hurt women and children.

Terrible news but good to hear they have someone in custody.

I feel for you guys. In my own little city there have been 4 gun related instances very recently (homicide just down the street from me last week). Makes me sick to think of how little regard for innocent life there is with some people these days. My heart goes out to the victims and their families.

To the person who wants the army to step in....that won't solve problems but will definitely create more. This coming from a member of the military. You don't want us getting involved.

Borg said he believes accused, deceased victim and 23yo critically injured vic were all in same gang, but shooting was not gang related.
