Canadian Member of the ‘Goyim Defense League’ (GDL) Arrested After Distributing Antisemitic Flyers

An arrest has been made in connection to antisemitic flyers that were distributed in neighborhoods throughout Peterborough.

On Friday, after a four-month investigation, officers with the Investigative Services Unit searched a home and located items connected to the distribution of the flyers between May and July of 2023.

During the investigation, the suspect provided police with a false name and address.

As a result, a 31-year-old Peterborough man was arrested and charged with mischief – obstructs, interrupts or interferes with any person in the lawful use, enjoyment or operation of property.

The Peterborough Police Service is currently consulting with the Ministry of the Attorney General to have the incidents deemed as a willful promotion of hatred under the Criminal Code of Canada.

Chief Stuart Betts released a statement saying there is no room for hate in our community and that it was important to do a thorough investigation into the origin of this disturbing material.
