Thanks to leftist city council, violent crime in Calgary at five-year high

Calgary Herald: 'Violent crime levels in Calgary and on CTrain lines reached a five-year high in 2021 and have continued to climb through the start of 2022, according to city police.


'But those rates are only slightly higher than those recorded in 2019, just before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Calgary Police Service Supt. Scott Boyd told members of city council during an update on crime and disorder Tuesday.


'“However, the severity of that crime has worsened, led by assaults involving weapons and bodily harm, as well as personal robberies,” Boyd said.


'“Weapon-related offences have been increasing and, in 2022, we’re on track to set a record for incidents involving weapons. The most common weapon that we’re seeing is edged weapons, typically knives.”'
