Here's the response from RCMP Staff Sergeant Dave Goddard, as quoted by The Province:
B.C. had 140 homicides in 2008, more than in any other year, and the RCMP deemed 30 per cent of those deaths were "gang-related".
But the UBC report is dismissed by RCMP Staff Sgt. Dave Goddard, who posed last week in front of 1,001 kilograms of cocaine seized from a sailboat, leading to charges against a Canadian and a Mexican.
"These intellectuals who come up with these ideas are great at pointing out the problem, but what's their solution?" demands Goddard.
