(JTA) – Laval, just north of Montreal, the third largest city in Quebec, was defaced with swastikas and other anti-Jewish symbols.
More than a dozen swastikas were spray-painted last week.
Police have yet to label the incident a hate crime, despite the presence of a giant Star of David with an “X” over it and white supremacist symbols.
“The sort of thing that I saw today happens to be the worst attack that I’ve come across,” Corey Fleischer, who owns a power-washing company, told CTV News on Friday after he removed the symbols.
Fleischer said in a Facebook post on Saturday that he removed 22 swastikas and eight Nazi SS symbols from 13 properties.
The vandals hit homes, park benches, a park chalet and automobiles in the incident, which was reported March 28.
In February 2015, vandals defaced several cars with swastikas in a Montreal garage and in January of this year, a dozen ant-Semitic symbols were scrawled onto a bridge connecting Montreal to Laval.
