Terrace has jumped from being the 79th most dangerous city in Canada last year to the eighth most dangerous this year.
Despite fears that the legalization of cannabis in 2018 would drive up the rate of impaired drivers caught behind the wheel, Terrace only registered an increase of three incidents, from 45 in 2017 to 48 in 2018. Youth crime is down, from four incidents in 2017 to two in 2018.
These are some of the factors that drove Terrace’s CSI to its new heights:
* Homicide – no homicides in 2017, one in 2018
* Sexual assaults – up from 13 in 2017, to 22 in 2018
* Breaking and entering – up from 47 in 2017, to 53 in 2018
* Fraud – up from 53 in 2017, to 76 in 2018.
