Canada’s most dangerous cities: Breaking and entering

  1. Again doesn't suprise me about Chilliwack.

  2. Saanich neighbours keep an eye out for each other. Top 5!!! Looks good on us.

  3. How come the full ranking isn't listed for this category??

  4. SURREY YOU MISSED THE TEN FOR THIS ONE ….. YOU HAVE TO WORK HARDER FOR NEXT YEAR MAYBE A NEW PRY BAR

    • Oh you ARE being sarcastic … sorry!!!

  5. YET ANOTHER example of the legalized robbery by the insurance companies. Peel Region rates 95th in the country, almost 50% lower chance of being a victim BUT, my house insurance rates go UP by 25%!!

    Okay, someone like to propose a logical extrapolation of that logic??

    • Insurance is like marriage. You pay, pay, pay, and you never get anything back.

      • Oh you are a gem

    • The only problem with this report is that it is based on reported break and enters, in the GTA and probably most major cities you don't call the cops, it's a waste of time.

  6. A democratic country exists only as long as the country has law abiding citizens. We are on a down hill slide and if corrective action is not taken we will lose our country as we knew it in the past. Most crime could be 90% eliminated if Drug Dealers, Murderers, Rapists and Child Molesters were flogged in the public square and then hung with the population looking on. No, that will not happen as we live in a deceived society which is based on lust , g reed and envy.

    • you forgot empathy. But seriously, you'd be so much happier living in Iran.

  7. I'm not sure what the headline writer means by 'an astonishing 53 of the top 100 have rates higher than the national average'. If you rank 100 cities or people according to anything, won't about half, normally, be higher than average? Or does the writer mean that the higher-than-average break-in rates are concentrated in only 53 places (of far more than 100)?

    • I don't get that either. If anything, having the median and the mean so close shows a very natural distribution.

  8. I have a daughter moving from Kingston to Chilliwack! Oh Lord I fear they are in for a BIG surprise, crime wise….Big difference!!!

  9. I worry about my Grandson who is ten years old and will be going to Chilliwack from Kingston
