“Appalled and disgusted to see this anti-Semitic graffiti desecrating the Ottawa Courthouse,” Harden wrote. “If you have any information about this vile act, contact the OPS’s Hate and Bias Crime Unit at 613-236-1222. Hate has no place in #OttawaCentre.”

B’nai Brith Canada also condemned the graffiti in a tweet Monday. “We are painfully reminded that #Antisemitism is a serious issue in our country. We hope and expect that the @OttawaPolice will identify the vandals and they will face full legal consequences.”
