    Halifax is relatively safe city for the general populace our violent crimes for the majority are between people who know each other, they are not random acts of violence

    I feel perfectly safe in Halifax

    It would be interesting to see where we rank if they took all the bullshit that happens between these people that know each other out.

    This can't be good for local tourism.

    "The three cities share several things in common: much of the crime is rooted in poor, inner-city cores and targets its most vulnerable citizens. There is a large gang presence feeding off the drug trade and other illegal activities. Those areas also house a young transient population, with a low level of education, substandard housing and high levels of unemployment, broken homes, addictions and psychiatric issues—all risk factors for crime. They have proportionately the highest urban Aboriginal populations among major cities, about 10 per cent. This is a predominately young population, burdened with risk factors. “They are 10 times more likely to be victims and suspects,” says Neil Boyd, a criminologist at Simon Fraser University. “It’s basically a very tragic reality.”

    I'd like to know where they get some of their population figures from. There is no way Oromocto has over 50,000 people, no wonder it's ranked so high per capita.

    No, that's what I'm saying. The population is about 9,000 IIRC. If they dilute the crime they have over 50,000 people it would be a much lower percentage than it would be over ~9,000, thus placing them lower on the list.

    If you stay away from the pubs, sprytown,the square,98% of the darkside you have like a 99.9% chance of never even seeing crime take place

    Tell that to all the people who have been swarmed, beaten and robbed in Halfax and Dartmouth by total strangers.
