Violent crime on the rise

Published: Thursday, October 18, 2007

Canada’s murder rate was down 10 per cent last year — to 605 — but the rate of youth aged 12 to 17 accused of homicide was at its highest point since 1961, according to the latest numbers from Statistics Canada.

A total of 84 young people were accused of murder in 2006, a dozen more than in 2005. The number of victims killed by a youth however, remained virtually unchanged.
