Why recovering gangsters should keep their stories to themselves
The B.C. government has given the province's anti-gang unit $10,000 to fund presentations aimed at the province's youth.
A portion of that money will go to an ex-gangster, to tell his story about why gang life is not so glamorous. The hope is that message will help steer another generation of young people away from the gang lifestyle.
But Preston Guno, who works with at-risk youth at Carrier Sekani Family Services in Prince George, says it's time for a new approach.
