The Ottawa Police Service is investigating a hate-motivated graffiti that occurred on Wednesday, October 14th at the National War Memorial on Wellington Street. At approximately 9:46pm, a man riding a bike approached the Memorial, used a sharp object to engrave a hate graffiti on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. He left the area on the bike. The suspect is described as Caucasian man. He was wearing a light-coloured sweater, dark pants, a dark tuque, a black back pack and was riding a mountain style bike (see photos).
Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted:
The antisemitic desecration of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is completely unacceptable, and I strongly condemn this hateful act. I urge anyone with information regarding the perpetrator’s identity to contact Ottawa Police.
Harjit Sajjan, Minister of National Defence, tweeted:
The hateful desecration of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier with an antisemitic symbol is despicable. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier represents the gallantry and the sacrifices of those who fought for our freedom. On Remembrance Day, we’ll come together to recognise our Veterans.
