A Toronto high school is reviewing security footage to determine who was responsible for defacing a student poster with antisemitic graffiti.
Robert Walker, the national director at Hasbara Fellowships Canada, was giving a lunchtime talk on Wednesday — hosted by the Jewish Student Club at Northern Secondary School — when the issue was brought to light.
“Today when I spoke at Northern Secondary School discussing Israel, one of the students told me there were antisemitic vandals marking the Jewish club’s posters — one of which was still on the wall! Horrific,” Walker wrote in a Facebook post.
The poster, which Walker shared on social media, was written over with swastika symbols and the words “Gas Em.”
School officials said in a note sent to parents on Wednesday that police have been contacted and staff are in the process of reviewing security video to identify those responsible.
