The 18Buddha gang was once an exclusively Asian gang, but now consist of members from a variety of backgrounds with membership totalling over 100, including a website dedicated to the gang. The outfit is based out of McCowan road and Finch Ave. East area covering the Scarborough/Markham boarders. 18 Buddha members specializes in fraud, extortion and drug/weapon trafficking. Their main rivals were the Big Circle Boys, but they were also known to have feuds with other minor sets aswell. This gang was the target of the Toronto police in 2003 and had some of its members arrested under the "Project Monk" operation, which desimated its core members and withered away membership.
