The biggest recruitor for Aboriginal gangs in Canada is Correctional Services Canada. I work for them. What happens is that the two predominant gangs in Canada are from Winnipeg. They are the Manitoba Warriors and the Indian Posse. When they go to prison, they are always a threat to each other. Consequently, many "problem" inmates are transferred to various regions throughout the country. What has been happening, these mid-level and above gang members recruit new members from the prison population. they don't have to hard sell them anything cause these new recruits are already criminals for the most part. The gangs networks are expanded and the government of Canada is financing everything. Its a tragedy when you think about it. Most gang members that I have talked to say that being part of the gang is like having a surrogate family. It takes the place of what has usually been a terrible home life. So yeah it is becoming an increasingly disturbing problem. The attraction to having them on reserves or reservations, is that most police agenices are not able to get "the truth" due to our peoples learned distrust of legal authorities. Additionally our populations are extremely static over a long period of time and as a result not too many people want to turn family members over to the authorities.
