Anti-Semitic and anti-black graffiti was found spray painted at a school in Aurora, located north of Toronto, on Wednesday.

According to a report on CTV, York Regional Police were called to Hartman Public School after several pieces of graffiti were found.

Police did not say what was spray painted, only describing it as hateful, anti-Semitic and anti-black.

“York Regional Police will not tolerate hate crime in any form,” said Const. Laura Nicolle. “These kinds of crime not only hurt the community that has been targeted, but they hurt us all.”

Police asked for witnesses to come forward with any information they might have.

Earlier this month, the phrase “Hitler was right!” was found spray painted on a highway in the city of Vaughan, a suburb of Toronto.

That incident occurred several days after anti-Semitic and racist graffiti was found on the walls, windows and playground equipment at three schools in the town of Markham, another suburb of Toronto.
