Description: "02/11/1981: Four firebombs were thrown at the Kuldip Gill’s home in Delta, B.C.. The Gill family is of East Indian descent. Two of the bombs hit an outside wall, and firemen doused the resulting flames. The other two bombs hit the pavement near the home but did not ignite. The owner claimed that his family had received threatening calls, and that windows in the home had been previously broken. The victims' home was located about three kilometres from the home of another East Indian family, which was heavily damaged by a firebomb the previous month. Craig Harland Mouseau was sentenced in Delta provincial court to nine months in prison."
