Posters attacking Winnipeg mayor Sam Katz have caught the attention of police and the B'nai Brith.
Police in Winnipeg said Saturday they are looking into a complaint about posters put up in the city's downtown area with messages attacking the integrity of Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz.
David Matas, from B'nai Brith, told CBC News he has seen images of the posters and the message is anti-Semitic and amounts to a hate crime.
According to a police news release, officers were dispatched after receiving a complaint around 9:30 p.m. CST Friday night about "questionable or inappropriate posters" that had been put up in the downtown area.
"Officers located publically displayed posters making allegations that Mayor Katz and members of Winnipeg’s business community are involved in questionable business transactions," the news release said. The police release did not include any images of the posters.
Police noted the messages were not signed and they did not say how many posters officers found.
The investigation was continuing and police were asking anyone with information about the posters to contact them.
