WATCH: It’s been a week since the nephew of MLA Harry Bains was shot and killed in Surrey. Police say he was targeted because he had ties to drug dealers involved in an ongoing violent turf. Today a forum was held at a sikh temple looking for ways to end the senseless violence. John Hua reports.
Members of the Sikh community held a public forum Sunday to discuss the recent gun violence that has gripped Surrey and Delta for nearly two months.
The Gurdwara Dukh Niwaran Sahib Society asked residents to voice their concerns and discuss ways to combat what has been described as a low-level gang war.
The panel included Eileen Mohan, the mother of Surrey Six murder victim Christopher Mohan, who has spoken out on gang violence in the past.
The event took place at Gurdwara Dukh Niwaran Sahib Society in Surrey.
Earlier this week, hundreds attended a public forum at Tamanawis Secondary to find out what’s being done to deal with the recent violence.
