Not completely correct Doug, City Manager at the time was heavily involved in influencing police response or lack of it including location of live venues all of which contributed to that disaster

Over many years one solution some have adopted to minimize scope & effect of crime in society is to categorize types of crime as less serious. Robbery=shoplifting, shots fired=mischief, etc. This is a disservice to taxpaying public & undermines community safety

Interesting to suggest police costs ⬆️ 24% over 5 yrs given proportionately very consistent & at times ⬇️ as proportion of overall city budget. Must also look at context; staff reductions post 2010 Olympics, new downloading & policing issues...Now catching up with growth & demand

Meaningful strategy or more political rhetoric....seems to me citizen's of Winnipeg in dire need of more...Police Board looks for ways to meet city's budget requests without cutting staff

This seems counterintuitive in light of ongoing resource/funding issues that seem like they'd be a higher priority? inHigh-tech hand scanners to track officers entering and leaving Winnipeg police HQ | CBC News

Doesnt make a lot of sense not to have police leading when managing any public safety issue; who else has infrastructure & expertise? Winnipeg police chief surprised by recommendation police should not lead downtown safety initiatives | CBC News

Or, focus resources on building capacity 4 police service 2 meet demand. Wndr how distracting (allocation of police resources 2 train & supervise) & costly "peace officer" prog has been? New crime-fighting team recommended to tackle violence in Lethbridge

As I've said a thousand times: despite what you might read in op-eds, police are popular. Adequately funding police services has broad public support. "Survey says don't raise Victoria council pay, spend more on policing: city report"

Yet police resources stagnant still not at levels pre 2010....socio economic and other factors that are driving that crime and violence growing...without right investments going to get worse before it gets better

.Have avoided discussion 4 many reasons; enough rhetoric all around this issue. Makes tough situation 4 members tougher. Political decision made by politicians who ran on platform & got elected. Surrey RCMP not properly resourced 4 decades & 4 many reasons won't be anytime soon

Absent growth or significant attrition which in policing typically means (and you need a lot) retirment, introducing gender equity & greater diversity takes time. Many other variables but generally speaking most police recruit classes accross canada are diverse & gender balanced
