Ophelia Lauritzen started this petition to Government of Ontario

The town of Swastika is not a hateful place. It was founded decades before Hitler took an ancient symbol of luck and blessings and turned it into one that represents hatred and death . But many people see that name and the symbol it brings to mind and feel the opposite of its original intention. Whatever the founders had in mind, WWII changed the meaning of the Swastika in the eyes of the world. The world has changed, and it is time for the city of Swastika to change too.

Please sign this petition out of respect and rememberence of the countless Jews, Gypsies, POWs, Disabled , and  Queer people, who were stolen away, imprisoned, tortured and murdered under the rule of Adolph Hitler.
