Poster in East York being investigated as hate crime

A poster promoting white supremacist ideology is now being investigated by police as a hate crime after it was spotted in East York Monday morning.

The sign was seen at a park near Parkside Elementary School, located near O’Connor Drive and Woodbine Avenue.

Some members of the public sent a picture of the poster to police prompting the Hate Crime Unit to investigate, Toronto police spokesperson Meaghan Gray said.

The poster invited people to join the Alt-Right movement -- which is linked to anti-semiticism, white supremacy and right-wing populism -- and listed websites associated with it.

“Hey white person, tired of political correctness?” the poster read. “Wondering why only while countries have to become “multicultural”? Figure out that diversity only means “less white people”?”  (more...)
