Radio Noon - Crosstalk: Increase in crime rates in Newfoundland and Labrador. July 28, 2011.
Today on the show, we're talking about crime in Newfoundland and Labrador. Last week, Statistics Canada released figures showing that violent crime went up by 13 per cent last year, and by 29 per cent in St. John's. The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary says it's important to keep that in context. What's your perception? Do you think there's more crime in Newfoundland and Labrador than there used to be? My guest on show, Ron Fitzpatrick. His group, Turnings, works with offenders and ex-offenders.
