From the Paper:

"Clearly, what is needed is to look at the sociological, systemic factors that are un-knitting the social fabric of Toronto, and start to fix things. This will be much more constructive than simply blaming the USA! A first step would be to increase public expenditure on the poor, raise welfare, and spend much more on affordable housing. And at root, perhaps it is time to honestly acknowledge that globalization, free trade and neoliberalism are not panaceas that will solve all social problems - indeed, they may in fact cause some terrible problems, including tragedies such as innocent young Torontonians being shot dead in broad daylight."
