Auto theft up in Canada after 8 years of Trudeau

Today, many people will wake up, and one of the first things they'll do is look out of the window. Not to check the weather, but to check if their car is still sitting in their driveway. Car thefts are up 300% in Toronto and 100% in Ottawa and Montreal.
It wasn’t like this before Trudeau, as he admitted in one of his own press releases last week. Since his Liberal Government was elected in 2015, there has been a 34% surge in car thefts across Canada. In New Brunswick, car thefts have spiked by 120%, while Ontario and Quebec have seen rises of 122% and 59%, respectively.
The explosion of car theft is making life even more unaffordable for Canadians. In 2022, for the first time ever, car theft cost the insurance industry more than $1 billion, meaning everyone has to pay more each month. In Ontario, car theft claims were up 329% in the first half of 2023, adding up to more than $700 million in losses. The Insurance Bureau of Canada estimates this costs every driver in Ontario an extra $130 a year.
