Is the gun registry why Quebec is safe and Ontario is violent now?Quebec kept the registry and crime went down, Ontario abandoned it and crime went up markedly.No, there are more complicated reasons why Toronto is seeing more gun violence than Montreal.

Toronto and surrounding areas has double the population over Montreal (about 6 million vs 3 million), so naturally it will see a higher gun violence rate just by a percentage of population alone.Toronto is also ruled by street gangs controlling the drug trade as opposed to the Montreal’s organized crime families and biker gangs, so murder rates are contained in those sectors in Montreal unless there’s an all-out war which we’ve seen in the past.There is significantly higher cross-border traffic between Toronto and the U.S. than Montreal which makes Toronto the perfect gateway for illegal guns to enter Canada.

No.The gun registry in Canada was officially called the Canadian Firearms Registry.What was distinct about it was that it required the registration of all non-restricted firearms…shotguns and hunting rifles.

Although that requirement has been dropped.the Firearms Act of 1995, which is still in force, requires the registration of all Restricted and Prohibited firearms, including handguns.And no, crime has not gone up markedly in Ontario and dropped in Quebec.

There has been an increase in gun violence…one type of crime… in Toronto…a part of the province.
