Toronto violence - good intentions overshadowed by news of school shooting

On my morning subway ride, I read a positive story on page 3 of Metro - Officers hit schools to bond with teens. In all the negativity and doom and gloom reporting of today's urban violence, I was pleased to the city doing something progressive and proactive and it appeared the reception from the community was very positive.

Now just about 6 hours later, I see the headlines - Boy, 17, in critical condition after Toronto high school shooting. These schools are just 7 kms apart.

Let's not give up on trying to make this city safer.
