Racist tie suspected in anti-abortion blitz
By Carla Wilson, Times-Colonist Staff

Anti-abortion materials apparently connected to a white supremacist
organization are showing up downtown and at UVic.

Posters plastered on the outside of Everywomans Books on Johnson
Street bear the same Victoria post office box address as
anti-abortion pamphlets and a racist sticker found at the
university.

Although all share a common address, only the UVic materials state
they are from an organization called the Canadian Front.

The bookstore's glass windows and door were plastered with 27 crude
black-and-white posters and cartoons on Monday morning, marking the
third time since June the shop has been targeted with anti-abortion
posters.

A CAnadian Front sticker stating, "White unity, white survival," was
found Monday at UVic's student union building, said a student
society director.

A swastika and an SS logo were on the sticker.

The sticker is similar to ones found by others downtown, he said.

The Canadian Front is also listed on stacks of anti-abortion
pamphlets found in two newspaper boxes at UVic's student union
building Monday, he said.

In the past few months, white supremacist materials with a Nebraska
address have shown up on Oak Bay Avenue near Pandora Avenue, Peters
said.
