White Supremacist Group Hits Toronto with Antisemitic Flyer Drop

Antisemitic flyers were distributed to homes throughout Peterborough over the Canada Day long weekend, with city police receiving reports from 19 residents from about 24 streets in the community.

City police investigators have canvassed the areas for videos and further information for their investigation into the 10-page flyers.

It’s believed the pamphlets were distributed sometime during Saturday night into early Sunday morning in the area of Parkhill Road West and Crowley Crescent and in the Medical Drive and Weller Street area of the city’s west end, police said.

This is the third time city police have received reports about such pamphlets. In mid-May pamphlets were reported delivered in neighbourhoods in the Lansdowne and George streets area as well as East City and in June in the Wolsely Street and Chemong Road area in the city’s north end, police said.

City police issued a map Tuesday outlining where they have received reports about the pamphlets over the past three months.

“There is no room for hate in our community at any time,” stated city police Chief Stuart Betts.

“The No. 1 goal of the Peterborough Police Service is public safety, and the service is committed to this goal. The map provided is intended to show the community the approximate locations of the reports by month.”

Anti-Semitic and anti-Black graffiti was also discovered at the St. Paul School on Hilliard Street in the city’s north end. on June 26.
