    If you live in or around Toronto, you assume it's like #1 ranked for violence in Canada. Or #2, behind Montreal or something. But it's actually #26. I think it just gets more media coverage since it's the most popular place in Canada. More media coverage = more fear inflicted upon residents and visitors alike.
    #26 ranked for most violent crime in Canada...damn. A lot of ****ed up stuff goes down here. Everyday. Countless murders and attempted murders every weekend. Watching the Sunday night or Monday morning news is really alarming. So I can't imagine what it's like in the 25 places ranked higher D:

    This study is based on 2006 per capita crime rates. I guess that's another reason Toronto seems worse off. More people might mean more crime, but less per capita. And larger area means larger news coverage. So many factors.

    Don't really thing where I live is violent, but I mean I live in a little town/village in the valleys, so yah.

    And as for trouble, it only really comes your way if you go looking for it. Place I come from has a pretty bad reputation for fighting, but yeah.. it's only if you go looking for it. Sadly there's just a lot of assholes there that do.

    I think Toronto is one of the most violent city's because of gangs and stuff in Canada. But I live 30 mins away from it. I'm considered in Toronto though.

    I got nothing...

    I live in the town where Chavs originated (not even joking). But yeah, they're not violent. Violent's too strong a word to describe a town/city.

    Mississauga? Vaughn? Oakville? Brampton? Ajax? Markham? xD

    I live in the downtown core. Moving to Rosedale though, w00t.

    Yeah good point Celeste, Toronto is made out to be a lot worse than it is. Everytime I go down though I end up watching news on people getting shot on subways etc. which are things I usually ride. Friday night I was there but took Go Transit and was meeting my friend there who took the subway. I just had to ask "Did ya get shot".

    But I guess if I think about Toronto really isn't that bad, and I've always wanted to live there. I was walking around at night on Friday and that sold it for me. That mixed with some actual clean snow made it look so nice there.

    I think the worst place in Canada is Winnipeg or something like that, which sounds funny to me but apparently the wheat boys get into gang troubles a lot.

    I also forgot, in my town a convenience store was robbed. It even made the Toronto Sun which is pretty cool and they even name dropped us. Overall we're not violent but people like coming here and doing stuff to us.

    London is comparatively peaceful considering its size. I mean, we have out fair share of knife crime, but with a city of 12 million residents, I'd expect no less.

    Northern cities, however, like Manchester and Liverpool, are populated by barbarians. Like, I went there, and thought this group of boys were going to mug me of my two pounds. I could see it in their eyes. Civilisation ends in the Midlands.

    Simon Cowell, what a dick.

    That's how I felt about Toronto's ranking. It's probably per capita. Then it makes sense.
