This article discusses how to make cities safer and ranks 24 Canadian cities on safety. The cities were ranked on categories such as intentional deaths (suicide & homicide), unintentional deaths & crime. St. John’s was the number 1 ranked city, not because of its homicide rate, but because it had low rates of suicide, falls & motor vehicle deaths. Areas that need more focus include preventing motor-vehicle accidents, designing safer streets, and educating the public about suicide.
