Most remain unsolved, and tense frustration among Somalis and authorities is running high. Somali leaders say they are working on solutions within their community, but they’re also demanding more public resources. Municipal, Provincial and Federal funds are going to Somali programs, but police complain about a lack of cooperation from community members. What is causing the continuing string of murders? What are the risks and costs for the public, and what are the Somali community, the police and Government doing about it? Joining us for this discussion is Ahmed Hussen, National President of the Canadian Somali Congress; Danielle Campbell, Superintendent of Criminal Investigations with the Edmonton Police Service; and Chris Hay, Executive Director at the John Howard Society.”
