After two years, swastikas still on community mailboxes

WATCH ABOVE: Canada Post is being accused of not acting fast enough to remove swastikas sprayed on a community mailbox in Pincourt. Billy Shields explains.

ILE-PERROT – A situation involving community mailboxes and hate speech has some in this community west of Montreal fuming.

A woman in Ile-Perrot, who asked that her name not be used, said she noticed swastikas scrawled on her community mailbox two years ago.

She said when she contacted Canada Post to clean it up, the agency referred her to the city of Ile-Perrot, who referred her back to Canada Post.

Canada Post spokesperson Anick Losier wrote in an email that residents need only contact the agency for them to send a crew to clean up the graffiti.

But community activist Corey Fleischer posted a video to Facebook showing the graffiti and claims the problem has persisted.

Ile-Perrot’s city hall didn’t immediately return calls seeking comment.
