Canadian law enforcement agencies have refuted allegations that they arrived late at the scene of Hardeep Singh Nijjar's murder and that a turf dispute between Surrey police and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) caused further delays in the investigation. The Washington Post had reported on the murder, stating that witnesses claimed it took between 12 and 20 minutes for police to arrive after the gunshots, and an "hours-long tussle" between the two police agencies delayed the investigation. However, Surrey RCMP has countered these claims, stating that officers responded within four minutes of the initial call. They assert that the investigation was not delayed in any way and that they are committed to holding those responsible accountable. Increased patrols have been implemented around gurdwaras and temples in response to community safety concerns. Dig Deeper

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is coming back in 2023, but this time in the form of a documentary-style video that is streamable on Prime Video, premiering on September 26.
