Abbotsford Police are investigating reports of KKK literature being found in the city.
Police were called to Marshall Road near Sandstone Drive Sunday, where a man said he found a plastic bag with the literature on his driveway.
More than 70 other bags were then found on streets around East Abbotsford.
Abbotsford Police Constable Ian MacDonald says The pamphlets had comments about Martin Luther King Junior and police believe the event coincides with today’s U.S. national holiday.
“It was essentially attacking Martin Luther King Jr on his birthday, yesterday. It was suggesting that it shouldn’t be a day that the U.S. recognizes as a federal holiday.”
Investigators are now looking for a dark coloured pickup truck, possibly a Dodge Ram in connection with the flyers.
“We actually have up to three different video perspective around midnight of their delivery Saturday night. We’re just looking to enhance some of the images to see if we can get a license plate from the truck.”
It’s the second time in recent months hateful literature claiming to be from the white supremacist groups has surfaced in the city.
Back in October, plastic bags of flyers were hurled at a residents doorsteps, in what police described at the time as a first for the city.
Concern over racist literature has been growing in recent months, with two separate incidents of anti-Chinese flyers being distributed in Richmond also reported in the final months of 2016.
