Langley, BC – A donated mural on the Langley Baseball clubhouse and concession in Langley City was defaced with antisemitic slurs and a swastika.
Graffiti declaring “Hitler rules” and anti-Jewish comments, some of them obscene, was spray-painted on the exterior sometime between Saturday night, March 25 and Sunday morning, March 26.
Dan McLaren, senior vice president of the Little League club, called it “deplorable.”
“It’s a hate crime,” McLaren told the Langley Advance Times.
“This is the first time we’ve had tagging of this sort.”
McLaren has reported the incident to Langley RCMP and the City.
“We’re taking this seriously,” McLaren said.
“If we find out who it is, we want to charge them. This is unacceptable.”
