MacLean's pegs us at 17 in annual crime rankings

Thunder Bay is the 17th most dangerous city in Canada according to MacLean's Magazine.  The Annual list pegs us 7th overall for violent crimes and 23rd for non violent crimes.  Prince George BC, tops the list this year with Victoria and Saskatoon rounding out the top 3.  Thunder Bay Police Chief JP Levesque says while its not good to be ranked so high, he isn't surprised.  He says until the social issues are addressed our crime rate will stay close to where it is.
