    Trudeau calls for action as gun violence spikes in Toronto

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Tuesday that a recent spate of gun violence in the country’s biggest city Toronto requires a “common sense firearms policy” and called for action.

    With the numbers of shooting incidents rising rapidly in Toronto this summer, Trudeau met with the city’s mayor John Tory as provincial, municipal and federal governments in Canada scrambled to respond to the outbreak of violence.
    Toronto has seen an increase in gun violence in 2019 so far - with 267 shootings resulting in 20 deaths and 132 injuries, according the police. That compares to 248 shootings, 30 deaths and 109 injuries in the same period of 2018. Seventeen people were shot over the holiday weekend last week. Toronto’s gun violence has been blamed on illegal guns and gang violence.
    While deaths by shootouts in Canada is negligible compared to the United States, gun control is rapidly shaping up to become a significant issue in the upcoming Canadian federal election in October.
    Trudeau stopped short of promising a handgun ban, as the cities of Toronto and Montreal have publicly asked for.
    “Recent shootings have underscored the need for common sense firearms policy,” Trudeau said at a press conference after the meeting with Tory. “We need action. But Mayor Tory and I agree that we can’t simply arrest our way out of this problem.”

    why I should worship the state (who apparently is the only party that can possess guns without question).

    No offense meant there. Either America has to act on its borders or Canada will have to do something more on its borders with border checking.
    Or take more measures.

    Seeing how trump has being so far of a clown. He hasn't done anything on the American/Canadian borders.

    Or Canada could let their citizens have guns to defend themselves, stop destroying their inner cities with liberalism and stop importing barbarians.

    Trump owes Canada nothing and neither does any American.

    Your lack of native facility with English is showing again, ChiCom.

    Trump says he’s willing to raise Canada’s concerns to Chinese president

    Trump never did. But in the end Chinese laughed at the Trump admin for that gaff.


    ChiCom.
    Is that what Trump supporters do when they are being challenged? return to name calling?

    He was willing to but Canada hasn't given him any reason to and they have given him reason not to.
    Trump will have the last laugh on China and Trudeau.

    There are bad apples in all groups there are also double agents whose job is to make the other side look bad.
    And who said the protestors were required to be peaceful? America didn't win its independence with peaceful protests.

    Its better that you Americans don't compare yourselves to either Chinese or anyone else inbetween.
    What America wants in HK is a big middle finger to China that is it really. Acting like a little immature child on the world stage pretending that the world belongs to America alone.

    who said the protestors were required to be peaceful?
    Why of course Trump boy MSM did. Several times.

    It is better if you don't try to tell us what to do.

    What America wants is irrelevant, what Hong Kong wants is what matters.

    That describes China as well or better.

    China is no better.

    What is "Trump boy MSM"?
    And it doesn't matter, Hong Kong has a right to seize its independence from the evil ChiCom regime by any means necessary no matter what anyone else says.
