Posters in New Westminster linked to white supremacist movement

VANCOUVER—Posters with the slogan “It’s okay to be white” were found plastered around New Westminster on Thursday, prompting police to monitor the case.

Similar posters bearing the slogan, which has connections to racist and white supremacist movements, have been found in cities in Canada and the U.S. since last year.

New Westminster resident Vanessa Woznow came across the posters that read “Its okay to be white” while walking along 8th St. and ripped them down. The NWPD is now investigating.  (VANESSA WOZNOW)
