VANCOUVER - Gurjeet Ghuman wants Indo-Canadian women never again to pay the price she paid to be free of an abusive marriage.
Six months ago, the 39-year-old mom had a good job at the Fraser Health Authority, lots of friends and was going through a divorce.
Today, she's blind after being shot twice point-blank in the head by her estranged husband, who then turned the gun on himself.
Wearing sunglasses and showing her beautiful smile, Gurjeet now feels she has a mission to help Sikh women.
In her first newspaper interview, Gurjeet told The Vancouver Province she wants to prevent more Indo-Canadian women from dying at the hands of their husbands.
