Former gang member shares his story

Former Lower Mainland gang member Amir Javid will be providing insight on the slippery slope of the criminal life during a presentation Monday, March 3 at 6:30 p.m., at the Red Barn in Sicamous. Javid and his family immigrated to Canada in 1990, settling in Richmond. Over the following decade, he and his brother become involved in a criminal gang. Javid says the lifestyle was fun until they stabbed someone who almost died in front of him.

“It will be a very candid talk on the consequences of getting involved in gangs and drugs and the dangers of it,” says Sicamous RCMP Sgt. Dave Dubnyk.
