I'm disappointed that VGUp failed to note another interesting aspect of Vancouver: a gang war.

The bodies of two local high school seniors, Dilsher Gill, 17, and Joseph Randay, 18, were found May 1 in their car on a remote road just outside this normally quiet town of 134,000 near Vancouver.


This crisp region of polished high-rises, emerald spruce, azure waterways and feel-good vibes finds itself in the midst of a gang war that has killed at least 18 young people this year.


It got so bad this spring that police erected concrete barriers outside the homes of two gangsters to slow down potential drive-by assassins.

Now that's government in the people's service.
