[Ed. – These hoaxes really do happen an awful lot.]
Toronto police say an 11-year-old girl’s report of having her hijab cut by a scissors-wielding man as she walked to school last week did not happen.
Police had been investigating the alleged incident as a hate crime and now say their investigation is concluded.
The alleged incident captured national attention after it was reported Friday and drew public condemnation from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.
