New measures coming to fight gun violence in Montreal

Summary by Ground News
Montreal has been dealing with a spate of high-profile shootings, including the daytime killings of two men within less than one hour earlier this week. The Quebec government will spend $250 million over the next five years to help Montreal hire more police officers and combat gun violence. The city and province will also split the cost of hiring another 100 social workers who can help with mental health calls, thereby easing the burden on police.
