Nazi Posters At Carleton University

We had been informed of this a few days ago but were not at the time in a position to write anything. The university newspaper provides the relevant information:

Racist Posters

A swastika-bearing leaflet for the National Socialist Party of Canada (NSPC) was found in the Atrium Feb. 26 by a Charlatan reporter. The flyer shows a picture of Jane Creba, the teenage girl killed in a Toronto gang shootout in 2005.

“The Negro gang members should never have been in Canada in the first place,” the flyer reads. “Open borders and lax immigration standards were as responsible for [Creba’s] death as the Negro thugs who killed her.”

But Jeremiah Valentine, the man convicted of Creba’s murder, was Canadian-born, according to the Toronto Star.

Several more flyers were found and confiscated Feb. 25 by the department of university safety. The flyers are “not acceptable on campus, and if we see them again we will remove them again,” wrote Len Boudreault, the director of the department of university safety.

Boudreault said he was not aware of any organized campus group endorsing the flyers. Carleton’s Equity Services said they were aware of the flyers but declined further comment. The Creba leaflet, among others, is freely downloadable from the NSPC website.

A representative from the NSPC could not be reached for comment.

The best known NSPC member is the founder Terry Tremaine who is currently on trial on hate crimes charges. We don't know if this postering was done by a member of Tremaine's group (he had claimed numerous members with little proof, though we suspect a handful of members scattered through the country) or just someone using the NSPC name.

If any of our dear readers have any more information, we'd be very pleased to hear back from you.

Speaking of hate on campus, do you guys have any info about the nazi graffiti on the UofC campus during the student union "elections"?

The ol' 'anti-hijab' thing seems reminiscent of those early AG protests.
