Today is April 3, 2016 – the City of Surrey, British Columbia is the murder capitol of Canada. When the news hour started, there had been 29 homocides in Surrey and for the first time, the body count went up to 30 before the news was finished. Breaking news indeed.
Surrey is the murder capitol because of a few factors: 1. Organized Crime 2. Domestic Violence.

Liberal. Saving lives and reducing crime.
Treating addiction as a medical matter rather than a criminal one.
