News in Review Under the Gun: Toronto's War Against Firearm Violence

In 2018 Canada’s largest city, Toronto, saw a massive increase in gun violence on its streets. Shootings were so frequent and often flagrant, taking place in broad daylight and near children’s playgrounds. The numbers were so high it had people worried that gun deaths in 2018 would surpass those of the so-called “Summer of the Gun” back in 2005. Police, politicians, social advocates and residents all made suggestions on what was needed to decrease gun violence, but proposed solutions remain as contentious as the problem.
