1.09.01 - “Restore the funding that the Liberals cut in half to the anti-guns-and-gangs units in Ottawa and Toronto in order to better protect our communities and stop crime”


“In a move meant to curb “the violent criminals who think they own our streets,” Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced $25 million in funding over four years to address gun crime and gang activity in Toronto. […] The lion’s share of the money will be an $18-million cash injection over the next four years to the Toronto police, to be spent as police Chief Mark Saunders sees fit, Ford said. […] Ford said Thursday the money would not go toward TAVIS-style policing, adding there would be “no TAVIS, no carding.”
