Are Winnipeg’s car thieves on March break, too?

For the first time in “decades,” not a single car stolen in a 24-hour period in North America’s auto-theft capital


 

On March 3, Winnipeg celebrated a theft-free day, according to the Manitoba Public Insurance Corporation. Indeed, Winnipeg has recorded declining rates of auto thefts over the past year, according to Mayor Sam Katz, thanks to the expanded use of “auto immobilizers,” and an intensive supervision program targeted at prolific offenders.

  1. Just because the numbers are lower doesn’t make them good enough to celebrate; the car-theft rate is still absolutely ridiculous.

  2. It was probably just too cold. They couldn’t get the cars started.
