“Every 2 hours, an act of sexual violence is committed in Edmonton, your vehicle is more likely to be stolen than involved in an accident, and the Edmonton crime rate is 51% higher than the national average.”

Edmontonians have established an organization aimed at tackling crime and disorder, prompted by city hall’s failure to keep them safe.

Edmonton citizens create group to hold city hall accountable  

It’s called Edmonton Forward, and it addresses various public safety issues, including assaults, open drug use in transit stations and on the LRT, lockdowns in malls and schools, and homicides.

The organization is funded solely by concerned residents and businesses in the city.

Abdul Abdi, a former police officer and leader of Edmonton Forward, stated that the organization was created by citizens who were “tired and had enough of crime and disorder in their community.” 

“Families should feel safe in the city they love. Parents need to have confidence their children are safe in public spaces and on public transit,” their website states. 

Additionally, the organization will focus on holding city hall accountable to ensure they prioritize public safety.

The group aims to work alongside the Edmonton police to halt criminal activity and ensure that resources for victimized citizens are easily accessible.

Disturbing statistics 

Furthermore, their website contains a “facts” page highlighting the terrifying statistics of specific crimes in the city. 

“Every 2 hours, an act of sexual violence is committed in Edmonton, your vehicle is more likely to be stolen than involved in an accident, and the Edmonton crime rate is 51% higher than the national average,” it reads. 

Despite crime and violence being constant negative factors impacting Edmonton, city counselors continue to prioritize other matters such as renaming so-called racist street names, creating 15-minute cities, and implementing climate-friendly buses that don’t work.
