Media Release

Toronto (August 17, 2021) - Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center (FSWC) denounces the antisemitic vandalism of two Jewish MPs' election signs in Montreal.

MPs Rachel Bendayan and Anthony Housefather shared photos earlier today of their election signs vandalized with swastikas.

"It is absolutely sickening to see this vile antisemitism targeting Jewish election candidates in Montreal," said Michael Levitt, president and CEO of FSWC. "There's no place for this Jew-hatred in the city of Montreal or anywhere else in Canada. This symbol of hate and genocide must be rejected by all Canadians, regardless of where one stands on the political spectrum."

Montreal police have been made aware of the incidents.
