Hate Posters in Niagara-on-the-Lake? You can’t be serious!! I checked the date to see if it was April 1! However, it was the March 28 issue. If we follow this logic of denying immigration, the native peoples of North America should have had hate posters to stop the “European founding people” from coming to Canada hundreds of years ago!! Immigration is a “way of life”! We have many immigrants from England, France, Poland, Germany, Holland, Yugoslavia, etc. Gordon Lightfoot describes how Chinese people came & helped to build our coast to coast railway system. (The Railroad Trilogy).We all cohabitate in relative peace & harmony.

To the anonymous local resident who “doesn’t feel comfortable, welcome or safe in NOTL anymore,” I apologize. You are one of us. “Diversity” is a code word for integration of “people” no matter their race, colour, creed, or sexual orientation.

The police may be unwilling to classify these posters as “hate crimes”, but they sure are not “love letters” either!! We agree with Mr. Harley in encouraging these “fear mongers” to crawl back under their rock!
