Truro Daily News - - News | Canada -

VAN­COU­VER – Of­fi­cials at the Univer­sity of Bri­tish Columbia says pro-Nazi posters have been found on the school’s Van­cou­ver cam­pus.

Philip Steenkamp, UBC’s vi­cepres­i­dent of ex­ter­nal re­la­tions, says in a state­ment that the “dis­turb­ing” posters were dis­cov­ered on War Me­mo­rial Gym on Satur­day.

The univer­sity was host­ing Re­mem­brance Day cer­e­monies in the gym that morn­ing. Pho­tos of the posters ob­tained by the Ubyssey stu­dent news­pa­per show what ap­pears to be images of Nazis with the words “the true he­roes of WW2.” Steenkamp says cam­pus se­cu­rity took down the posters as soon as they were made aware of them. He says the univer­sity takes in­ci­dents of hate and racism very se­ri­ously.
