FSWC Condemns Latest Distribution of Your Ward News in Kitchener

July 12, 2018

Media Statement

Toronto (July 12, 2018) - Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center (FSWC) condemns the latest distribution of Your Ward News, this time in the Central Frederick neighbourhood of downtown Kitchener.

Several residents reportedly received copies of the publication – known for its promotion of hate and intolerance – this week. While hate crime charges were laid against the editor and publisher last year and Canada Post was banned from distributing the publication back in 2016, it continues to be delivered by unknown individuals.

“This is an antisemitic, racist and hate-filled publication that still manages to make its way to people’s mailboxes and doorsteps. Members of communities across Ontario must remain vigilant and share their concerns with city officials,” said FSWC President and CEO Avi Benlolo.

FSWC has advised the mayor of Kitchener of the recent distribution and calls on city officials to join in condemning Your Ward News and the messages it spreads.
