North Vancouver RCMP is investigating racist graffiti found on election signs of Azmairnin Jadavji, the People’s Party of Canada’s candidate for North Vancouver riding.
“The RCMP have informed our campaign office yesterday that there was a racist graffiti “Go Home Arab” “Sand Negro” “No More Arabs” written on our campaign signs. The RCMP have opened a file and are investigating the incident,” Jadavji said.
“I was shocked and disappointed that in this age and time, someone will make such derogatory and irresponsible comments, on the edge of committing a hate crime. I represent People’s Party of Canada that stands for equality of all people.”
Jadavji said the volunteers from his party have knocked thousands of doors and distributed campaign literature indicating the PPC platform and information on the candidate.
“We expected people to make an informed decision and vote accordingly. But we never expected that someone will express hate against a candidate, a father of four children who has been living on the North Shore for the last 18 years and running a successful business for over 30 years creating jobs and contributing to our economy, communities and the cultural mosaic.”
Jadavji said he is a proud Canadian and has a strong voice on issues important to Canadians, and would like to contribute and represent the people of North Vancouver in the parliament.
“Though it is sad, but such hateful graffiti is not going to discourage me from doing my job,” Jadavji said.
