  • 2nd degree murder charge laid in death of 18 year old Mehakpreet Sethi

A second-degree murder charge has been laid in the death of an 18-year-old Mehakpreet Sethi outside a Surrey high school last year.

Homicide investigators say an 18-year-old man has been charged, but his name won’t be released because he was a youth at the time of the death.

The stabbing happened November 22nd last year outside Tamanawis  Secondary School, while the victim was picking up his younger sibling.

IHIT’s investigative team has remained committed to this investigation over the past year. We would like to thank the Surrey RCMP, the staff and students at Tamanawis Secondary School and the entire community, for their support throughout this investigation, said Sgt. Timothy Pierotti of IHIT. Serious incidents such as this have a profound impact on all those involved. IHIT and the Surrey RCMP will continue to support the community and all those affected by this senseless tragedy.

The teenager was found with life-threatening injuries at the scene and efforts by first responders weren’t able to save him.

Eby says governments must step up on housing, can't rely on private sector
British Columbia Premier David Eby says it's "hard to understand" why other politicians still believe in relying on the private sector to deliver affordable housing and instead it's time for governments to step up. Eby says there are proposals at the federal level to sell public land and buildings to help solve the crisis, but B.C. is doing the opposite by taking inventory of provincially and municipally owned land in order to build more homes.
