Mayor's Statement

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made public statements today that national security agencies are investigating “credible allegations” that “agents of the Government of India" were involved in the killing of prominent Canadian Sikh leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Surrey this past June.

There is an ongoing investigation currently being conducted and I will monitor this very serious incident that has impacted our city and our country. I am confident that law enforcement agencies will ensure that the integrity of Canadian democracy and the safety of our citizens are protected.

I hope that this investigation provides Mr. Nijjar’s family with the closure I am sure they seek.

Mayor Brenda Locke
