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.
