Alberta city plastered with racist, homophobic graffiti
People in southern Alberta are busy cleaning up racist and homophobic graffiti that appeared overnight on many of their homes, garages, fences and cars.
Police in Lethbridge, about 225 kilometres southeast of Calgary, say the graffiti referred to several ethnic groups, including Caucasians, and also contained obscenities. Two of the spray-painted messages also say "White Nation" and "White Power."
Police say they are following several leads in the case, but added there is nothing to suggest that it was directed at any particular person or property. The graffiti is not considered hate propaganda, nor motivated by bias or hate as defined by the Criminal Code of Canada.
