Chief Bill Blair’s “Project Safe City”

~~~

Once a week, I hope to bring to you a list of “gun crimes” from the Toronto Police Service’s “Major News Reports” web page.  Some of these are incidents you won’t find in your daily newspaper.  These are proof that Chief Blair’s witch hunt against everyday gun owning citzens, which he likes to call “Project Safe City”, isn’t working.  Instead of persecuting and harassing honest citizens, he should be devoting his scarce police resources to addressing these real criminals who are committing real crimes.
