Aboriginals six times more likely to be homicide victims: Statscan


Statistics Canada has released its latest data about the number of homicides in Canada, and Manitoba continues to have the highest rate in the country, but it's an Ontario city that is leading the way with the most deaths.

Thunder Bay, Ontario had the highest homicide rate in 2014 among Canada's census metropolitan areas with 11.

StatsCan said that in 2014, 85 percent of homicides with aboriginal victims were solved compared to 71 percent solved where the victim was non-aboriginal.
