Racist graffiti on Dr. Knox Middle School in Kelowna shocked those taking a Sunday morning walk.
The Kelowna RCMP is investigating the mischief and a form of a “hate crime” was spray painted on the portables at the Kelowna school sometime on or before Oct. 9.
Const. Mike Della-Paolera said that the vandalism included several racist remarks including swastikas and references to the “N” and “F” words.
“It’s disturbing to see this kind of hate,” said Const. Della-Paolera “There is no place in Kelowna for this lack of humanity and our investigators are working with the school to track down and identify those responsible.”
Kelowna RCMP and school officials are working to have the graffiti painted over before students return to class on Oct. 11.
The school is working with the RCMP to identify who is responsible for the vandalism. Police are asking anyone with information or video footage from their home security systems to come forward and reference file number 2022-63798.
