Mayor, chief announce new squad

Mayor Plante and police chief Sylvain Caron have announced a new squad to counter the rash of shootings we’ve seen in the east and north ends of town.

After reading the TVA piece about how easy it is to get a gun, with sellers in the U.S. prepared to send weapons piece by piece for assembly that can’t be easily detected by law enforcement, while I can see the need for social intervention in RDP and Montreal North, I also wonder if there aren’t technical means to stop this illegal trade at the border.
