While I was sitting on my duff enjoying Neighbour’s Night Out, a real reporter, Lisa Rainford, attended the meeting to debrief residents after the recent arrests and gun seizures in Weston:
Six weeks after police seized 80 guns off the streets of Toronto as part of operation ‘Project Patton’ — which targets the infamous Five Point Generalz gang with ties to Weston — officers spoke to the community about its after effects.
The seizure was one of the largest in Canadian history, Toronto police told the dozens of residents who attended a public meeting
The police outlined the many risk factors for gang involvement—and revealed a sad fact. Most gang members are children.
“Fifty per cent of gang members are under the age of 18,” Chhinzer said. “Education is our best bet.”
