      It blows me away at how uneducated people are, yet they write stupid comments anyway…I have a friend whose daughter lives in subsidized housing, they get criminal record checks. You cannot have a record and live there…a person just out of jail for mass murder,however,is allowed to purchase a home right next to yours…there,now you are a little more educated, you’re welcome 😀

      Bergman. 60 days 5 crimes. Smallest of the 5 neighbourhoods.
      Beacon Heights. 60 days. 20 crimes.
      Beverly Heights. 60 days 27 crimes. Largest of the 5
      Rundle Heights. 60 days. 18 crimes.

      For aspect….
      Rutherford. Nice, new neighbourhood. 60 days. 18 crimes
      Hmmm

    • Maja Black no they don’t, criminal live in low income housing. It was supposed to be a crime free housing. Years ago I was part of group of tenants that met monthly, to discuss issues and we did get support from the city of edmonton, but sadly, the city decided it was not doing much to help the tenants and the group dismantled. Those issues are still going today…where I lived there was stole property recovered, dealers busted, and this type of crime continues.

    • Wow lots of troll here, they think they know what they are talking about but their arrogance is present, ugh I have no patience for uneducated ppl who twist word to suit their lame arguments!

      [0]
    • Chase Yaremchuk you have never lived in low income housing. I doubt that very much about not having any stolen, you are so full of bullshit, your arrogance is again showing. Yes ETS stat are just that stats, you needed stats to back up your argument where I have actual living facts. Whenever I write something you don’t like you troll/stalk my posts….Get a life!
