Chilliwack Candidate Campaign Sign Hit With Racist Tag (NOTE CONTENT)

Chilliwack – Campaign signs in any election are fair game for idiots and fools and pranksters. Those that think it’s amusing to hit them with graffiti.

Chilliwack Mayoral candidate Sam Waddington’s downtown office was hit by someone with a sharpie. It was innocent enough. Horns and a bad mustache scrawled on the side of the building.

Kelowna RCMP are investigating the arson of a campaign sign over the weekend in that town.

This recent incident is one that should be of grave concern.

On Wednesday night, as Louis De Jaeger was gathering his campaign team for its official fund raising launch (he is running for City Councillor), it was noted that someone scrawled “nigger” on one of his signs.

De Jaeger said he faced a similar situation in 2014 when he ran as a Liberal in the Federal election. Then, someone tag many of his signs with swastikas.

De Jaeger said to FVN : “Never been called a deNigger before. It’s better than the swasticka’s from last campaign. Racism should not be tolerated at any level.”

DeJaeger is Metis and gay and is proud of his background. He is hoping that by showing the photos, a message of tolerance may be learned.

Back in the summer, a Chilliwack man, Nick Cooper, who had a hate filled record in his long past, went out of his way to clean up racist graffiti on a bridge underpass.  Cooper said at the time, that he had changed his ways and wanted to clean up the community. Cooper told FVN that he was “saddened and shocked to hear what happened to De Jaeger’s sign.”

RCMP have yet to comment on the De Jaeger sign.

    East Indian person into their house. They actually live in your community and they have recently initiated a support Tommy Robinson facebook petition on Facebook. I suggest you look that one up Tommy Robinson as the individual who made the original East Indian remarks also made some rather “unsavoury” commentary regarding an individual who runs a convenience store in his neighbourhood as he did not like them listening to a non-English radio station when he went into that store to buy his smokes. I think if he does not like it he could simply choose another store (perhaps a white-owned one maybe) that he might prefer. Then he will not have to listen to “Al Jazeera” as he said and maybe he will learn to mind his own business one day and actually grow up someday. Also he said the Ireish were slaves too. Interestying where he gets his history lessons though.
