Winnipeg, MB – Mayor Bowman issued the following statement today regarding a recent act of anti-Semitism in Winnipeg:
“Recently, a family in Winnipeg was the target of an anti-Semitic act at their home.
I am profoundly disturbed and disgusted by this reprehensible display of hate.
Winnipeg is a community that embraces diversity and inclusivity. This incident goes against the values we hold dear, as a community. Winnipeggers stand together and strongly oppose any act of hate, such as this.
The Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) is aware of the incident and investigating it as a hate crime. I encourage Winnipeggers to support the WPS investigation and bring forward any relevant information.”
