Members of the Sri Guru Nanak Sikh Centre in Brampton, Ont., have agreed to a number of changes in the way their religious centre, known as a gurdwara, is run.

On the weekend a fight broke out between different factions at the gurdwara over - among other things - allegations of financial mismanagement.

On Tuesday evening, the congregation approved new leadership for the centre and hired a new financial manager.

Ramphal Dillon, spokesman for the Sikh Centre, said the new board members and the new financial system will go a long way to resolving the tensions that led to last weekend's violence.
