Violence in our community: pretending it's not our problem won't make it go away

The North York Mirror published an editorial related to the unfortunate events from last week, Violence in our community: pretending it's not our problem won't make it go awayI believe that the root problem of crime in our community consists of councilors like Giorgio Mamolitti, who through their ill-thought policies have concentrated social housing in our area without adequate support. But the media itself contributes to the problem by ignoring the people in the area, who for the past few years have been trying to call attention the neglect and lack of resources that this neighbourhood is confronted with.

When the press dropped by, the frustrated residents were first interviewed on City TV, Global, CTV and OMNI news, but eventually they were censored out. Giorgio Mamolitti came running to do some very effective damage control and took the spotlight to give the impression that he's doing something for the community and fool people into believing that the problem can be solved by military presence. What we need is intelligent policies that take this area out of the trouble is in.
