Racist graffiti targets landmark building in Victoria's Chinatown
Police ask for help solving crime targeting Chinese community
Victoria police are asking the public for help locating those responsible for the racist defacement of a cultural landmark in the city's Chinatown.
The offensive graffiti was discovered on a column at the site in the 600 block of Fisgard Street on Friday, according to a police news release.
The crudely scrawled message read, "No dogs or Chinese allowed."
Police are asking anyone with information about the incident to call 250-995-7654 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
This is just the latest in a long series of racist attacks targeting people of Asian descent in B.C., since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
