So, tell me again, how Macleans magazine is sayin' the "Centre of the Universe"... is such a safe place to live.

A police source told CTV News the surviving victims have not been co-operative with detectives.
FROM THE COMMENTS:
Well Toronto if it's not an issue then I guess your Mayor and Dalton have no business calling for a ban on guns now do they?**********
Its a problem or its not, you can't have it both ways.
LAST WORD: What shooting report would be complete...
Without a little "Red Star" whitewash?
One resident said he heard that the youths were "playing with their guns" when the gunfire broke out just before 10 p.m. in the Dufferin St. and Lawrence Ave. W. area, south of Yorkdale Shopping Centre.See, Hassan... that's just not true.
Another said the incident may have been triggered when one gun "accidentally fired", prompting others in the group to return gunfire.
Hassan Ainanshe was at work when he heard shooting had broken out next to his home, and rushed back to check on his teenage sons.
"Before it was The Jungle, but we cleaned it up," said Ainanshe, who moved here from Somalia five years ago.
"It's safe now – nothing like this has happened before."
The unrelenting violence is actually why residents call this place "The Jungle"... "playing and accidents" notwithstanding.
It's their Red Badge of Stupidity... and they're proud of it.
Welcome, yet again, readers of Canadian Cynic.
Apparently CC has now decided to link to 10 of my posts at one time. I'll content myself with replying once here.
It'll pretty much illustrate what this guy is all about.
