Criminal Gangs eyeing Northern BC

Police across Northern BC are keeping a closer eye on gang activity these days, conscious of an increased interest in Northern BC spurred on by the oil and gas development of the Peace area and the economic spin off benefits of the Fairview Container Port.

The Prince George Citizen posted an article on their website today, which examined the growing activity which the police now says involves at least seven different organizations that are operating in the North.

Of interest to those on the North coast is the attention that the police are paying to the development of the Port of Prince Rupert, a changing situation that they feel will lead to a marked increase in drugs, weapons, child pornography, slavery (sex- and extortion-based) and other ultra-illegal activities gangs revel in.
