Recently MacLeans magazine did a story on Canada's most dangerous cities. They looked at certain factors, such as homicide, sexual assault, vehicle theft, and robbery.
It's interesting to note that Western Canadian cities dominate the "naughty-list", while Eastern Canada is on the "good-list". This seems to coordinate well with the number of counsellors per-person by province "survey" that I did. There are more counsellors and therapists in Western Canada. Would love to see if there is the same type of consistency in the USA. That is a ratio to high crime rates, and a high ratio of counsellors and therapists.
Have a dart around the MacLeans website and check out where your city ranks overall, or in one of the particular areas. It just might influence where you move next.
