uCalgary investigates racist graffiti on student election campaign posters

March 8, 2010

The University of Calgary is investigating an incident in which campaign posters belonging to a pair of candidates in a recent student election were marked with racist graffiti. On one poster of a female Muslim student, swastikas were drawn on the forehead of the woman's picture, along with an arrow pointing to her hijab with a note reading, "This is a hate crime." University officials say the vandals have not been caught, and the school will be watching carefully to see if a trend forms. Calgary Herald
