Canadian Thought Police Investigating “Neo-Nazi Hate-Bias” Incidents
Sudbury, Ontario police are investigating what they call "hate-bias incidents" after National Socialist stickers were found at Cambrian College and various locations across Lasalle Boulevard.
Greater Sudbury Police Service (GSPS) says an officer from its Central Community Response Unit attended College after National Socialist stickers were first reported on Oct. 25.
Police then received a second call on Nov. 5 with regards to the stickers in various locations across Lasalle Blvd.
The stickers show a symbol that police say is "of a Neo-Nazi (white supremacy) origin in the colours of red, white and black."
The stickers also listed the name and contact information for a group who police are not identifying due to the "type of content they are promoting".
"These stickers were also quickly removed as there is no room for hate, bias or discrimination in our community," said police in a Nov. 7 media release.
"The name of the group and the contact information is not being included as the content is extremely disgusting, vulgar, and offensive."
Police are asking anyone who finds these stickers posted on private or public property to report it to the thought police detectives.
"We know that crimes and hate-bias incidents are extremely under reported and we are working hard to change that," police said in the release.
"The Greater Sudbury Police Service takes reports of hate motivated crimes and hate bias incidents very seriously and we recognize the impact on and pain felt by community members when there is evidence of hatred. We want to assure you that we are committed to investigating these situations thoroughly."
