Canada – Gun Violence – Bear With Me, My Perspective on Toronto’s 21 Murders, As An Expat American, May Be Different From Yours – 20 July 2012

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

Anyone who’s ever lived in a large American city can now laugh bitterly.

CITY-TV interrupted “How I Met Your Mother” in order to put on this vital special report about how Toronto is awash in violence.

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.
