Mission residents discover flyers from the Ku Klux Klan on their doorsteps

The package came in the form of a clear plastic bag containing a one page flyer and a small amount of rice.

Residents of Cherry Avenue woke up Monday morning to find a small package on their front lawns – allegedly from the Ku Klux Klan.

The package came in the form of a clear plastic bag containing a one page flyer and a small amount of rice.

The flyer indicates it is from the “Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan” and that “Yes! White Lives Do Matter.”

It contains more statements and includes a website and a “Klan Hotline” phone number.

In July of this year, residents in Chilliwack had the same flyer delivered to their homes.

More details to come.
