Calgary has become a crime-riddled city run by Mayor Jyoti “Defund the Police” Gondek who refuses to take responsibility for creating a crisis in public safety.

Calgary’s new normal: Daily stabbings and shootings

Random shootings and stabbings are occuring on the streets and public transit on a near daily basis – and sometimes there is more than one incident per day.

On Wednesday, for instance, a man was shot on a city bus in broad daylight while other passengers watched in horror, hoping they weren’t next. One person was taken to hospital and two were put in custody.

“I spoke to one person who was on the bus who was pepper sprayed and heard a ‘pop,’” CTV’s Jordan Kanygin reported.

Kanygin further said the fight spilled out onto the streets.

Hours later, Calgary had its second shooting of the day. Police closed the block of 6th Avenue and 10 Street SW after a dead body was found next to a running vehicle.

Police said they have identified a suspect, who remains at large, but were unwilling to give more details.

Another crime scene believed to be related to the aforementioned shooting resulted in bullet holes through a home window near 3 Avenue NW and 9A Street NW.

A local resident recalled hearing gunshots around 9:30pm on Wednesday.

“I was sitting on the couch and suddenly I heard three or four — I thought they were fireworks — but when I came down, I looked from the window, I saw the car was moving,” the witness said.

Then, on Thursday morning, yet another stabbing took place on a city bus. Fortunately, the victim was treated with only minor injuries, but the teenage male suspect remains at large.

This 36 hour crime spree is not an exception in Calgary anymore – it’s become the norm in Mayor Gondek’s crime-infested city.

On April 3, a man was taken into custody in Calgary after stabbing multiple people, leaving at least one victim in critical condition.

“Within approximately 15 minutes, beginning around 12:45 p.m … police received multiple reports of a man with a knife who is believed to have stabbed three people and assaulted another while trying to steal a purse,” a police statement read.

To combat the rise of violent crime in Calgary, Alberta Premier Danielle Smith deployed twelve sheriffs in downtown Calgary in a pilot project meant to help Calgarians feel safe walking the streets.

The Calgary Police Service (CPS) and Alberta Sheriffs partnered on the project.

“We can deter crime and make people who live and work in these communities feel safe while serving Albertans that need help,” said Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Services Mike Ellis.

And last week, Premier Smith announced another 100 police officers were being dispatched to Calgary to clean up Mayor Gondek’s mess.


During Smith’s announcement, Gondek was left speechless after The Counter Signal’s Keean Bexte asked her a question about her “defund the police” record.
