Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated Tuesday evening that he was angered and disgusted that election signage for two MPs were vandalized with anti-Semitic sentiments.
MPs Anthony Housefather and Rachael Bendayan shared through tweeter posts images of their election signage with swastikas written over them.
Both condemned the act online.
Housefather said it was sad to see anti-Semitism in the election campaigns on the 3rd day. He added that this would not scare him from speaking up for the Jewish community in Canada.
Bendayan linked the anti-Semitism to the far-right sentiments to the south if the border.
Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center (FSWC) stated that the Montreal Police had been informed about the anti-Semitic graffiti.
The FSWC, through its president and CEO, Michael Levitt, stated that it is sickening to see anti-Semitic sentiments against Jewish candidates in Montreal.
