Councillor Mammoliti's Plan to Get Rid of Guns and Gangs
Some tough talk from Toronto councillor Giorgio Mammoliti.
Public housing residents who harbour gunmen should have their welfare benefits slashed and be evicted from Toronto Community Housing. The councillor also wants any newcomers to our country who haven't become citizens, be immediately deported, if they're convicted of gun offences.
It's all part of his four-year plan to get rid of, or reduce the city's gun and gang problems, and he wants the Prime Minister to take it seriously. He's going after a change to legislation that would see gun crimes fall under Canada's terrorism laws, meaning anyone convicted of a gun crime would be considered a terrorist.
Mammoliti suggests the kinds of crime now, merits the return of capital punishment. He figures that's what's needed to prevent gang fights like the mass shooting on Danzig Street, were two people were killed, and twenty-three others wounded by gunfire.
