Toronto is Safe and Sound


Go figure, Toronto is merely #26 on a list of the 100 most dangerous cities in Canada. To assemble the rankings of the most dangerous and safest cities, Maclean's magazine used 2006 crime data from the Canadian Centre of Justice Statistics. The magazine then calculated the percentage difference from the national rate for six crimes - homicide, sexual assault, aggravated assault, vehicle theft, robbery plus breaking and entering - to determine the overall scores.

Here's the top twenty dangerous communities in Canada.

  1. Regina
  2. Saskatoon
  3. Winnipeg
  4. Prince George
  5. Edmonton
  6. New Westminster
  7. Chilliwack
  8. Victoria
  9. Vancouver
  10. Halifax
  11. Brantford
  12. Kamloops
  13. Burnaby
  14. Surrey
  15. Thunder Bay
  16. Kelowna
  17. Fort McMurray
  18. Nanaimo
  19. Montreal
  20. Abbotsford

I find it intriguing that the most dangerous city in Ontario is home to the hockey player least likely to drop the gloves.
