Anti-Semitic graf­fiti re­ported on rail trail

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Coun. Chad Collins has re­ported anti-Semitic graf­fiti to po­lice af­ter be­ing no­ti­fied about the hate­ful spray paint on Hamil­ton’s rail trail.

A con­stituent who reg­u­larly uses the rail trail dis­cov­ered the graf­fiti, which in­cludes a swastika, near the Mo­hawk Road bridge, Collins said.

The Ward 5 coun­cil­lor called the graf­fiti con­cern­ing and said he im­me­di­ately re­ported it to po­lice and the city’s parks depart­ment for re­moval.

Hamil­ton po­lice spokesper­son Const. Steve Wel­ton said it’s im­por­tant for the pub­lic to re­port in­ci­dents like this.

“We un­der­stand the im­pact th­ese types of in­ci­dents have within the com­mu­nity,” he said. “There is no place for this in our city ... or any­where.”
