Candlelight vigil held paying tribute to Kalwinder Thind

Family members and friends of Kalwinder Thind, 23, who died last Saturday , January 27 when he was stabbed while trying to break up a fight just outside the Cabana club at 1159 Granville Street, held a candlelight vigil on the sidewalk outside the club to pay tributes to the young man who’s being hailed as a hero.

They expressed their love for him and held a minute’s silence to show their respect. The crowd kept getting bigger despite the rain and the cold weather and police had to block off Granville Street to traffic.

One speaker noted how excited Kalwinder was as he was going to leave for India on Monday, January 29 with his dad for the first time in is life.

Thind’s former boss at sales at Richmond Chrysler, Danny Mouro, told The VOICE: “He was obviously a really good guy, fun-loving, always joking, kidding, big smile, full of life. I worked with him for a little over a year.” Mouro praised him as a hardworking person, noting: “He was working with us six days a week and still worked one night a week at Bar None.”

Police are asking anyone who may have cell phone footage of the Granville Street fight that occurred on Saturday, January 27 and claimed the life of Kalwinder Thind, 23, to call investigators.
