Re: [Serious] Scarborough block party turns violent One needs to look at the total number of attempted murders and actual murders combined versus previous years to get a more realistic indication of an increase or decrease in these types of crimes. Both of these crimes are related, and if one goes up while the other goes down all that does it indicate that people are more efficient at reaching their goal, not that the number of people who want to kill other people is going up. One should also keep in mind that the increase in murder was specific to Alberta and Quebec as well, not Ontario or Nova Scotia.
As for the child pornography numbers, that has more to do with efficiency in police work more than anything else. Canada is a world leader in tracking down child exploitation in the Internet. Other countries - including the US - come to us to track down people. No surprise with that number at all.
