THE Ontario Gurdwaras Committee (OGC) on Thursday said there is “growing concern in the community in regards to the recent violent events taking place in and around the Peel Region involving members of our youth.”

The OGC noted that “these senseless acts of violence have resulted in critical injuries and even death.”

The OGC, in partnership with United Sikhs, has scheduled a Town Hall meeting for the community to discuss this growing issue.

“It is our responsibility to address the issue and begin a dialogue regarding these concerns. The town hall will be facilitated with community stakeholders that have subject matter expertise on this issue,” the OGC said in a press statement.

The panel speakers and guests will range from elected officials from all levels of government, Peel Regional Police, mental health professionals, Sheridan College Student Union Representative and local NGOs. The final list of speakers will be published upon confirmation from all guests.
