Toronto Police have given advice to residents worried about the city’s spiraling auto theft problem – just let thieves steal your car by leaving them the keys.
Toronto Police Service Constable Marco Ricciardi said, “To prevent the possibility of being attacked in your home, leave your [key] fobs at your front door because they’re breaking into your home to steal your car. They don’t want anything else.”
And believe it or not, some people are actually taking the advice.
“Spoken or not, though, some Torontonians have evidently taken the advice to heart,” reports the Drive.
“Like one person who—after having their vehicle broken into three times—opted to leave their car unlocked (along with a big, handwritten note indicating this) so that would-be thieves don’t break the window again.”

Crazy advice....

I heard that a car is stolen every 40 mins in Toronto....insane....

Should increase charges to "Grand Theft Auto" (like in USA)......
minimum sentence 10 years .....and 20 years for the "King Pins"...
because currently, very weak...like stealing a candy bar, back on the street in 2 days....

Also, Port of Montreal is a huge "weak point"....upgrade inspections....
me thinks security at the port is on "the take".....like, "here's $50K and you turn a blind eye".
