Top Cop says gang violence could spread to Fort St. John

One of the province’s top cops is warning that gang violence is spreading from Metro Vancouver to B-C’s Interior.

RCMP Assistant Commissioner Al Macintyre yesterday told the House of Commons justice committee that the spread has reached towns as far away as Fort St. John.

Macintyre was among a number of Vancouver-area officers who told the committee that police and prosecutors need the legal cuffs removed if they’re going to fight the region’s gang problem.

He said the number of homicides this year could reach record levels if the current violence continues.
