Car theft in Canada was down four percent in 2004 to nearly 170,000 vehicles stolen, which is, if memory serves, half the number of cars stolen in Detroit last month. Kidding aside, Ontario and British Columbia saw the largest declines with -12% and -6% respectively, while Newfoundland and Labrador saw a dramatic rise of +52%, and Nova Scotia and Manitoba both saw increases in the mid 20% range. Manitoba has remained the least safe place in Canada to park your car thanks to the particularly high theft rate in Winnipeg.
