Mayor David Miller...

Calls on Harper government to enact total ban... on senseless murders...
Shawn Mclean, the shy, mentally challenged young man who was shot Tuesday night, passed away this evening, becoming Toronto’s fourth homicide victim of this year.
Loudly proclaiming that "murder has only one purpose"... Toronto's mayor explained that no one will be safe... until legislation prohibiting the taking of other people's lives is enacted.
The young, schizophrenic man was believed to be walking home from the North York Sheridan Mall when an unknown assailant shot him in the neck.

He was left to die on the icy sidewalk, bleeding and alone, when he was found by a passer-by on the east side of Jane St. near Chalkfarm Dr.
