A village is a clustered human settlement or community, larger than a hamlet but smaller than a town with the population ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand. Though often located in rural areas, the term urban village is also applied to certain urban neighbourhoods, such as the East Village in Manhattan, New York City and the Saifi Village in Beirut, Lebanon, as well as Hampstead Village in the London conurbation. Villages are normally permanent, with fixed dwellings; however, transient villages can occur. Further, the dwellings of a village are fairly close to one another, not scattered broadly over the landscape, as a dispersed settlement. In the past, villages were a usual form of community for societies that practise subsistence agriculture, and also for some non-agricultural societies. In Great Britain, a hamlet earned the right to be called a village when it built a church. In many cultures, towns and cities were few, with only a small proportion of the population living in them. The Industrial Revolution attracted people in larger numbers to work in mills and factories; the concentration of people caused many villages to grow into towns and cities. This also enabled specialization of labor and crafts, and development of many trades. The trend of urbanization continues, though not always in connection with industrialisation. Villages have been eclipsed in importance as units of human society and settlement.

The new reports fromThe Globe and Mailand theToronto Star offer conflicting information on the exact date of the interview, with one saying it happened in 2013 and the latter say it was between 2014 and 2017. But both reports raise questions about what Toronto Police knew about Bruce McArthur in the years leading up to Bruce McArthur arrest. Clockwise from left : Majeed Kayhan, 58 ; Dean Lisowick ; Soroush Marmudi, 50 ; Selim Esen, 44 and Andrew Kinsman, 49. ( Toronto Police) The Globe and Mail, citing a source with knowledge of the interview, says it occurred during the Project Project Houston investigation, which looked into the disappearances of three men in Toronto's Gay Village neighborhood, two of which Bruce McArthur was later charged with killing. The source said detectives had linked Bruce McArthur to two of the men through dating apps and brought Bruce McArthur in for questioning after receiving an anonymous tip. The Toronto Star, citing similar sources, said the interview happened between the closure of Project Houston in 2014 and the beginning of another investigation in 2017 that resulted in McArthur’s arrest. It also said the interview was over a matter unrelated to the missing people, but did not disclose what exactly. Detective Sgt. Hank Idsinga told The Globe and Mail in January that Bruce McArthur was not Bruce McArthur during Project Houston. Until we can establish that there has been foul play, we can attach a criminal offence to foul play, that's when someone would become Bruce McArthur.
