Statement from Chief Mark Saunders

I welcome Mayor Tory's initiative in securing funding from all three levels of government to help address gun violence in our city.

We know that most gun violence in Toronto is directly connected to street gang activity. The Toronto Police Service has a comprehensive plan to address the issues we're facing.

I will launch the Service's plan in the coming days and we will continue to work with our communities to reduce gun violence in our city. Together we will create safer spaces.
