Deputy Mayor Chris Gibb said in 2022, there were 2,161 tickets written by police. In 2023, it increased 42.5 per cent to 3,080 tickets.


“I think it’s one of the most effective ways to keep our residents safe is to target people who can’t go by the rules,” said Gibb. “We get a lot of calls and e-mails that they never see police in their neighbourhoods but (they’re) somewhere.”
