Racist flyers surface. Posted: July 22, 2017 6:16 p.m. By BRYAN CLARK. The Post Register has verified two instances in which flyers were found in distant corners of the city.

More white supremacist flyers have been circulating in B.C., this time in Burnaby.

A photo of a flyer advertising a white supremacist website was posted on Twitter Thursday. Twitter user @leacohodas says she saw the poster outside the Bob Prittie library in Metrotown on Wednesday.

In a statement, the library’s chief librarian Deb Thomas said two posters reflecting white supremacist views were found glued to the main east entrance of the Bob Prittie Metrotown branch on Oct. 29.

She said as soon as the posters were reported to library staff, the entrance was closed and the posters removed.

The task force says more racist fliers from the website, the Daily Stormer, appeared in Sandpoint several days ago. A statement from Otter was read by Tony Stewart, one of the founding members of the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations.

CKNW has reached out to the Burnaby RCMP for comment. It’s just the latest in a string of racist flyers to turn up in B.C. Anti-Semitic posters were spotted at the University of Victoria last week, while neo-Nazi flyers were found in East Vancouver earlier this summer.

“Burnaby Public Library is a member of Burnaby Together, a group spearheaded by Burnaby Family Life that is working against racism and hate in Burnaby,” Thomas said, in the statement.

Burnaby RCMP say they are looking into the matter.

Last month, similar flyers were found on campus at The University of Victoria.

At the University of Victoria, the posters stated “(((Those))) who hate us will not replace us,” and provided links to white supremacist websites.

The university condemned the posters as anti-Semitic and said an investigation was ongoing.

Campus security was informed that the offensive posters were found displayed on several bulletin boards in the Cornett Building, according to Cassbreea Dewis, acting director of equity and human rights.

They were removed  immediately, Dewis said.
