“Twenty-one”, says Gord Martineau, anchor at Toronto’s CITY-TV. “That’s the number of murders in Toronto so far this year.”

In numerous cities in the US, that “twenty-one” figure would be reported in the third section of the paper, underneath the movie reviews.
Anyone who wonders why I love Canada should wonder no longer.
