Toronto — A Toronto city councillor is floating a controversial idea on curbing gun violence in the city.

Michael Thompson says police should be allowed to “target” young black men at random as part of a crackdown on guns.

Mr. Thompson, who is black, said a large percentage of the guns being used and a large number of people being killed are in the black community, so there is a need to target people in the community.

He said he is not calling for police to pull people over just because they are black but because gun violence is affecting the black community.

Deputy police chief Keith Forde, who is also black, says chief Bill Blair would “never ever agree to that.” There have been 30 gun-related deaths in Toronto among the 44 homicides in the city so far this year. In a new effort to reduce violence in the city, Mr. Blair announced Monday that he is reassigning 100 desk officers to uniform duty. They will join street patrol officers and provide a bridge until 96 recruits graduate from police

Mr. Blair redeployed 50 officers to a problem area in the northwestern part of the city earlier this month
