Comments: Guardian Angels in Toronto

YEAH RIGHT....
We do not need more gangs in park dale.....
This is canada not the usa

These guys are not accountable for anything they do, and since their arrival have been pandering to the absolute lowest denominator..

I live in parkdale, have crack heads doing drugs in my alleyway, hookers on my corners and doing tricks in the shadows and theives attempting roberies weekly...

I want to see more POLICE , not a bunch of pseudo crime fighters, who in their spare time sell only a little dope and commit only a little bit of welfare fraud, when extra is needed.

Police are accountable....wanna be crime fighters are not!!

If a cop is shot at or attacked , they can return fire and force.
PRIVATE CITICENS CAN NOT!!

If a community wants to help it self ...first it must look at itself, repair the conditions that makes crime and drugs accessable, MORALS, DECENCY and CANADIAN TRADITIONAL VALUES...
not YANKEE VIGILANTEISM ..

When a viewpoint relies solely on invoking the anti-American card it doesn't deserve a response.

Good to see you back up & blogging! And I agree, Debbye, that community involvement is essential in the cleanup. I've moved to a condo in d/t Edmonton a block away from a notorious drug park (the city is trying to create a liveable d/t); however, we have police foot patrols & in my building, their cell#s are posted on all doors & entryways. If we see something while walking the dog, we call & they respond. We don't yet have areas as bad as Parkdale, but there are a few that are close (downtown obviously isn't one of them or I wouldn't be here).

Candace, it's so good to see you! You make a terrific point: the security in your condo also relies on each person taking responsibility for being alert and taking action, in this case by notifying the appropriate people.

Congratulations on your newish digs, by the way.
