Manitoba Crime Up 14%

WINNIPEG - Statistics Canada says Manitoba recorded the country's biggest increase in crime last year.

The province saw a 14 per cent rise in crime, followed by Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island which all saw increases of six per cent.

The agency's crime severity index rose by four per cent across Canada last year.

Neil Boyd, professor emeritus at Simon Fraser University's school of criminology, says a larger data set with a 10 year time frame might offer a clearer picture of crime across the country.
