The words "white man" are written in bold and all capital letters at the top of the flyers followed by an exclamation point. The flyer asks, "Are you sick and tired of Anti-White propaganda constantly being promoted by our universities, mainstream media and government?" 

Following a similar comment, the flyer proclaims, "You are not alone!"

The flyer also features a number of images of religious and cultural symbols that have been crossed out. 

A closing statement on the flyer reads that, "White Nationalism is North America's fastest-growing civil rights movement, and the only movement that puts the interest of our people's first!"

On Twitter, Morgane Oger, LGBTQ+ activist, tweeted about the flyers, stating that, "This disgusting flyer was distributed in Vancouver this weekend, on the lead up to #HolocaustMemorialDay"

"This illustrates why acts targeting people in communities because of who they are need to face consequences in publications, public institutions, and online."

Sgt. Aaron Roed, VPD media relations officer, told Vancouver Is Awesome that an investigation is currently underway. 

"We are aware of the flyers and we find this material extremely disturbing and offensive," said Roed. "Our Criminal Intelligence Unit and our Hate Crimes Unit are actively investigating."

According to Roed, a number of flyers were found on windshields in the Vancouver Kingsway area. 

Road adds that anyone who fears for their safety should immediately call 911. 

Anyone with further information is asked to call the non-emergency Vancouver police line at 604-717-3321.
