  1. I’ve lived in thunder bay all my life, that’s my hometown, I moved here 2 yrs ago, and you guys are scared crying about lil things why not take a trip to Murder bay, I’m sure you won’t say much else about SSM this is nothing it can be fixed…

    • And I’d say you’re one of those ostriches with their head in the sand.
      Why do you think property and car insurance rates are higher here?
      Keep denying all you like while the city continues to deteriorate all around you.
      How are those overdoses doing again? What was that, nearly the highest overdose rates in Canada?

  2. Like I said in a previous post, according to MacLean’s “Most Dangerous Places to Live” (using Stats Canada data), Sault Ste Marie’s murder rate is actually only 0.81 lower than Toronto’s.
    The Sault Ste Marie 5 year increase in crime is about 5 times worse than Toronto’s.
    Toronto 5 year change – increase index of 6.97 Sault Ste Marie 5 year change – increase index of 33.39
    In terms of worsening crime that puts us at #22 overall compared to Toronto at #101 overall.
    Toronto’s overall crime severity index is 66 but Sault Ste Marie’s is far higher at 113.
    You are now far more likely to be a victim of crime in Sault Ste Marie than you are in Toronto.
    Citizens of the Soo are in denial but this is the raw truth.
