Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Kelowna are investigating after “numerous” anti-Semitic posters were placed around the city.

Officers were notified on March 19 that posters and decals, many of which were “anti-Semitic in nature” had been put up along Abbot Street and at Kelowna General Hospital.

Police said the woman who made the initial complaint had already removed a number of the posters, and that city employees were working to remove the rest.

After launching their investigation, RCMP officers discovered additional posters on Abbott Street, as well as decals at a bus stop in front of the hospital.

“The posters have been removed and the investigation is in the early stages. The RCMP Forensic Identification Unit is engaged,” said Sergeant Kevin Duggan.

“The RCMP is working closely with the city of Kelowna to review video that may help to identify those involved.”

Anyone with information or dash cam footage from the area is asked to contact police.
