Troubling graffiti discovered at overpass

A passerby noticed some anti-Semitic messages at the 200 Street and 68 Avenue pedestrian overpass.

Anti-Semitic graffiti was spray painted onto the footings of a pedestrian overpass on 200 Street over the weekend.

A pedestrian called the Langley RCMP to make them aware of the graffiti that read “white power” with swastikas on it.

Police notified the Township who were going to get rid of it, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks.

Marks said there hasn’t been any other complaints recently about racist graffiti.

But last week, a Langley resident received an unusual note on the door, stating that if a person is in the country illegally, it is a crime. The resident has been a Canadian citizen for more than a 15 years. Police said because there was no threat in the note, it isn’t a police matter.
