The social worker's words echoed those of Kevin Galvin, head of the Edmonton Police Service's Co-ordinated Crime Unit.
At a media presentation held in November 2007, Galvin foreshadowed the same scenario as predicted by Untereiner.

Using parallels from the business world, Galvin illustrated the structured nature of the drug trade in Edmonton.With product delivered casually pizza-style by high school gang-wannabes and lavish parties feted on successful partners at downtown penthouses and mountain retreats, Galvin cautioned the good times of Edmonton's criminal enterprises may soon come to an end.

"There's a group of young people who get involved with a business process that they think is the MTV lifestyle and they are not prepared for the violent end of it," Galvin warned.

Kevin Galvin, head of the gang unit at the Edmonton Police Service, says officers started seeing central African refugees forming gangs about six years ago.
Historically, every new wave of immigrants has had problems with organized crime.Criminal elements tend to recruit within their own cultural communities.

"Some of the frictions that you see in relationships there may ripple out here because they are all interconnected," Galvin said Wednesday.
"We may see an increase in gang-related violence, we may see similar types of crimes being committed here that are now occurring in the Lower Mainland."
Galvin said intelligence reports shared by municipal police forces and the RCMP indicate there is growing friction between gangs over the lucrative illegal marijuana and cocaine markets.
Prices for high-grade pot known as B.C. bud, much of which is exported to the United States, have fallen to a point where competing criminal groups are fighting to maintain profits, he said.
Alberta's cash-rich booming economy has also created a huge demand for cocaine, much of which is brought in from B.C.
"This is a business issue that is erupting now," Galvin said.
In Edmonton alone more than 24 gangs are involved in the drug trade.
...
But there is a part of the gang life that is so discreet that it is very difficult for us to get in," Galvin said.
