The VVT, police believe it was formed in the early 1990s and named for Valvettithurai, a northern Sri Lankan town. This group traditionally dominates the west end of the city from their stronghold in Etobicoke, have members ranging in age from their early teenage years to men in their 30s, at one time gang had over 250 members. They were considered to be highly organized and very dangerous due to the way they conducted business. They had an ongoing war with the AK Kannan set out of Scarborough, the dispute between the two heads stems from their native land (Sri Lannka). Overseas, the beef escalated to gang fights and shootouts to secure territorial rights for their trade. There was a brief truce in 1998 after community members brokered a peace deal in a Richmond Hill Hindu temple. But a homicide a year later renewed the fighting, until the infamous police raids in 2001.
