On October 1, 2005 The Globe and Mail reported, "A group of Sikh-Canadian senior citizens were sprayed with fire extinguisher foam from a slow-moving minivan as they sat at a picnic table yesterday morning in Surrey's Bear Creek Park. It was in that same park that two elderly Sikh men were attacked with baseball bats in the summer and later died. This time, no one was seriously injured, said Surrey RCMP Constable Ali Mirza. But to a community on edge after the slayings, the spraying of a group who regularly use the park for recreation is upsetting, he said. 'People were very fearful that this had happened,' Constable Mirza said."
