Is that 450 officers above the attrition level? or 200 officers above the attrition level?
There are many experienced officers retiring soon, to be replaced by new recruits. What effect will a significant % of police officers that are rookies have on crime? money laundering ? fraud?
How many gangs operating in the past 3 years?
How many members?
There is graffiti on just about every corner( Canada Post boxes for example).This has been overlooked and makes the city look seedy.3 years and still not much improvement.Property owners can't be too happy with graffiti on their buildings when it affects the property values.Will they be getting a discount on their taxes?
Revolving door justice. Officers keep doing the same work over and over with a lot of the same violent individuals on catch and release, filling out a blizzard of paperwork.The bully pulpit should have been used long ago, not just in a hot off the press crime package a month before an election.Are there enough experienced Crowns? support staff? Sentencing?
The first duty of a government is to protect its citizens.Actions speak louder than words
NATO in Afghanistan
"Today, the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force has expanded its operations to include the East of Afghanistan. NATO will now carry out its UN-mandated mission – to extend the authority of the Afghan Government, and to create the conditions for reconstruction and development -- throughout the whole country, building on the efforts of the US-led Coalition.
The expansion of the NATO-ISAF mission is a reflection of the Alliance’s unflagging commitment to help the Afghan people build a better future for themselves. As part of that effort, NATO will soon also begin providing equipment and training to the Afghan National Army.
In Afghanistan, there can be no development without security; and there will be no long-term security without development. Therefore all international actors need to work closely together, supporting and reinforcing each other in order to maximise their efforts and to promote Afghan ownership."

“We are in a state of civil war, orchestrated by radical Islamists. This is not a question of urban violence any more, it is an intifada, with stones and Molotov cocktails. You no longer see two or three youths confronting police, you see whole tower blocks emptying into the streets to set their ‘comrades’ free when they are arrested.”
"Otto von Bismarck knew what he was talking about. "People never lie so much" he said, "as after a hunt, during a war or before an election."
Apparently some didn't know what the Gomery Commission was about-some people trying to game the system
