Class 1 Felony of recording a conversation is just below the prison time you'd spend for murder

It's nice to live in Canada.

Between 2006 and 2008, my local area had an average murder rate of 0.7 per 100,000 people and a violent crime rate of 12.8 per 100,000 people.

It's a town of about 50,000 people, so that's 1 murder over 3 years and about 6 violent crimes per year ...

My US town of 55,000 people only has a 6.6 per 100k violent crime rate. It's nice to live in the USA too.
