A little league baseball clubhouse in suburban Vancouver, British Columbia was vandalized with antisemitic slurs and a swastika over the weekend.
The graffiti was found on a donated mural in the Langley Baseball clubhouse and concession in Langley. It also included the phrase “Hitler rules” and other “obscene” antisemitic statements spray painted on its exterior. The vandalism occurred between the night of March 25 and the morning of March 26, the Langley Advance Times reported.
Dan McLaren, the senior vice president of the little league team, told the news outlet that the defaced mural has an anti-graffiti coating which should enable the offensive phrases and symbols to be removed.
He said that if the individual behind the incident is identified, they intend to press charges. The Langley RCMP and city officials have been contacted.
“We have over 700 kids from ages four and up who could see this, and I don”t want that to happen,” McLaren said.
