Canada’s crime rate at lowest level since 1972

The country’s most crime-blighted cities were once again in the west. Regina topped the table for the 14th straight year, followed by Saskatoon, Thunder Bay and Winnipeg. But even among the worst cities, crime was down in nine of the bottom 10, with Winnipeg the sole exception.

The safest city was Guelph, in spite of a local increase in crime , followed by Quebec City, Toronto and Ottawa. Of the 10 safest, only Guelph and the Quebec community of Sherbrooke had increased crime, compared to 2010.

Of course in Priority Neighborhoods – the rate may be somewhat higher….
