Saskatoon was the most dangerous city in Canada in 2007 while Caledon, Ont., was the safest community, according to the latest survey by Maclean's magazine.

This is the second year the magazine has issued the lists and the second time Caledon, northwest of Toronto, has topped the list of safest areas.

Saskatoon is followed on the most-dangerous list by Winnipeg, Regina, Prince George, B.C., and Edmonton.

Caledon is followed by Oromocto, N.B., Levis, Que., Maskoutains MRC, Que., which includes Saint-Hyacinthe, and Halton Region, west of Toronto.

As for Canada's two largest cities, Toronto ranked 29th out of 100 cities, compared to 26th last year, and Montreal ranked 24th compared to 19th last year on the high crime list.

Maclean's says it based its rankings on 2007 per-capita crime rates, the most recent available from the Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics.
