A Facebook page that included derogatory posts about the local immigrant population in Brandon, Man., is being investigated by city police.
The page, which contained a profile picture with the words “I Hate Immigrants,” was removed from the social media site on Saturday.
Staff Sgt. Greg Hebert says police first received a report about the page last Monday, and a second complaint came in on Friday.
Hebert says it’s not the first time Brandon police have investigated a targeted online attack, but he notes it’s not a common occurrence.
Brandon resident Rhonda McCorriston reported the page to Facebook when it was still active.
She says it was not taken down after her complaint because it did not violate Facebook’s community standards.
