The Top 10 Most Wanted Criminals In Canada
There might be one near you!
We Canadians are extremely lucky to be living in a such a safe country. Our crime rate is especially low compared to our Southern counterpart, the United States.
TL;DR Canada for the most part is a safe and peaceful country. But that doesn't mean we don't have crime. These are the top 10 criminals currently featured on the RCMP most wanted list.
Once and awhile we hear about some truly shocking and horrendous criminal stories that happen right in our homeland. Anyone remember the infamous Robert Pickton? If you don't let me refresh your mind, he was the Canadian serial killer that murdered 49 women between 1983-2002
That's not to say there haven't been more recent cases. We decided to create a list of 10 fugitives that Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) are still hunting. All the information below comes directly from the RCMP website.
If you do spot one of these individuals, please don't approach them, and instead leave a "tip" at 1-800-222-8477.
