Whitby Mayor Don Mitchell yesterday condemned the distribution of racist literature and said Durham Police has been notified and is investigating.
“It’s come to my attention that there is a disgusting piece of racist literature being left at some homes in our town right now,” said the mayor in an open letter posted on social media.
“So as not to give a platform to this rubbish, I will share no further details as to the nature of this message other than to say that I condemn both the content and the act itself,” said Mitchell. “Hate speech of any kind has no place in our community, and the town of Whitby will not tolerate it.”
He said Durham Region Police Service (DRPS) has been notified and is looking into the matter.
“I encourage anyone who has received similar literature to file a report with DRPS at 1- 888-579 -1520,” he added.
