Gang slaying victim Chris Mohan to be memorialized in gang violence forum

An upcoming anti-gang forum is seeking to educate parents and empower youth in memory of innocent gang execution victim Chris Mohan.

The Chris Mohan Memorial Youth Forum will be an all-day event taking place at Queen Elizabeth Secondary School in Surrey on May 26, with a morning session geared toward parents and an afternoon session geared toward youth.

Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts will provide the opening remarks, and parents will hear from Eileen Mohan about the life and legacy of her son Chris, whose birth anniversary of May 31 is marked by the event. Then, the forum will begin, featuring Supt. Tom McCluskie, head of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit’s Gang Task Force; Kim Bolan, crime reporter for The Vancouver Sun; and Eileen Mohan. The forum will be streamed at so that parents everywhere can watch and pose questions online.
