This is really sad. I recall back in my childhood days, the West Island was the safest place you could find. It was an ideal place to raise a family.

The solution here is to overhaul our laws and provide stiffer penalties for gun related crimes. If longer prison terms isn’t a deterrent, then it’s best that the perpetrators of these crimes remain locked up indefinitely. Furthermore, if we had more lax gun laws without all the red tape and hoops that we currently have to go through to get our handgun permits, we’d have more law abiding gun owners in our cities. You know that the situation isn’t good when criminals with guns outnumber the law abiding gun owners.
The Montreal police were called early Saturday morning to investigate how a house in Dollard-des-Ormeaux was the target of two shootings in just over a week.

The home on Donnacona St. is within shouting distance of a high school and is close to Dollard-des-Ormeaux’s civic centre, city hall and the popular Marché de l’Ouest.

It is located in a neighbourhood that is normally quiet, but several residents who were walking their dogs or heading to the popular West Island market said they no longer feel safe and expressed frustration. Two said they heard something else happened at the same home in 2020, but they could not recall any details.
