Garry Pashe Jr., 23, was shot by Revelstoke RCMP following reports of a stolen vehicle
The man shot and killed by RCMP last month following reports of a stolen vehicle in Revelstoke, B.C., was a young Indigenous man trying to get home to Manitoba in time for his son’s birthday, according to his sister.
Garry Pashe Jr., 23, a member of the Long Plain First Nation, was visiting B.C. to help a relative move back to Portage La Prairie, Man., Mellisa Pashe told CBC News.
She said her brother was “a vibrant kid … always smiling, always happy.”
Garry loved to work on his motorcycle and four-wheelers, Mellisa said, and he hunted and fished to help feed his family, bringing home elk and deer.
“He never really had bad days, always told everybody he loved them … and always gave everyone hugs.”
