There is a massive and prolonged recession in Alberta. Property crime has increased dramatically as people get more and more desperate to maintain their lifestyle. Downtown has seen the biggest increase in violence, and it is now to the point where you wouldn't want to be wandering around in the wee hours of the morning. The city is officially in a Fentanyl crisis.

besides the vast weed dealers and petty thefts here, Edmonton ain't that bad.

Edmonton is a growing very spread out city. There are few poor ghettos and no gated communities for the rich. For the most part low income is well blended in with middle and upper class. Muggings are very low because pedestrian traffic is among the lowest in the developed world. If you use common sense and pay some attention to what is going on around you than it is very safe in all neighborhoods even in the so called low income and seedy neighborhoods. Petty theft, like pick pocketing or stolen unattended items if any, is likely to happen at summer festivals or malls.
