0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!


We (the singees of this petition) demand immediate investigation and action regarding the racist flyers being distributed and circulated by mailbox to residents of Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario. 

This distribution is considered a hate crime under the Canadian Criminal Code:

Public incitement of hatred

(a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or
(b) an offence punishable on summary conviction.
Marginal note:Wilful promotion of hatred

(2) Every one who, by communicating statements, other than in private conversation, wilfully promotes hatred against any identifiable group is guilty of

(a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or
(b) an offence punishable on summary conviction.

We the signees demand immediate recourse for this hate crime. We also demand accountability, transparency and action on the part of WRPS and Elected Officials in our region, both parties should be publicly addressing the community on the egregious nature of this crime and working in solidarity with the BIPOC community to make our region safe for ALL. 

We strongly encourage elected officials to make an official statement regarding this crime and express actions to be taken by the region to address BIPOC safety!
