On September 10, 2005 the Indo-Asian News Service reported, "A temple in the Canadian province of British Columbia that was destroyed in hate crimes following the 9/11 terror bombings in the US has been rebuilt and will be inaugurated Sunday - exactly four years later.

Called Project Elimination of Hate Crime, the temple located in Hamilton, will be inaugurated at a public function.

The temple, destroyed on Sep 15, 2001, has become known as the Canadian Ground Zero and received donations from across the globe, the South Asian Observer newspaper here reported.

Multi-faith groups from Hamilton and the surroundings joined hands to rebuild the temple and eliminate hate crimes from the face of the world. The project also initiated programmes to heal victims of such crimes."
