I wanted to take a quick minute and share the Surrey, BC, Canada, stats for the first quarter of the 2019.
Mainly, there has been a few important facts to notice, and those are listed below to compare 2019 Q1 verses 2018 Q1:
- The Homicide has gone up by 67% from 2018 to 2019 --> 5 homicides in 2019 verses 3 in 2018
- Violent Crimes has gone up by 43% from 2018 to 2019 --> 2003 violent crimes in 2019 verses 1400 in 2018
- Property Crimes have gone down by 9% from 2018 to 2019 --> 6397 property related crimes in 2019 verses 6994 in 2018
- Offensive Weapons Crimes gone up by 68% from 2018 to 2019 --> 104 offensive weapons related crimes in 2019 verses 62 in 2018
Why do you feel this year some of these have gone up? Is it the gas prices? Is it the new people moving to our Province? Is it lack of housing? Is it legalization of marijuana? Is it less support from the BC Government? Taxes? What are your thoughts?
Please find all detailed stats from the RCMP attached to this blog.
Thanks for reading.
