it can be very difficult for many of the residents of these neighbourhoods to stand up and speak out. Many are new Canadians, often from war ravaged countries. Police represent a negative authority because of the situations in their homelands, and many of these people don't know where to access services within the city. It's too easy for those connected to crime to monopolize these areas because the communities themselves lack capacity. it's a really tough situation.
