After reading Margaret Wente’s article on the Danzig Street neighbourhood in Toronto where two people died in last week’s mass shooting (Portrait Of A Killing Zone – July 23), I paused for a moment and tried to imagine life there.
A page or so later, I saw a description of a $4-million home that boasts a mahogany library and an 1,100-bottle wine cellar. You know the big predictor of violent crime in a city? Income inequality.
