Members of London’s LGBTQ+ and Jewish communities say they’re disappointed and fearful after “alarming” graffiti was found scrawled in a park in London’s SoHo neighbourhood over the weekend. “It’s really scary that this is happening,” said Shawnie Gallant, who was out walking a dog Saturday when they came across swastikas and hateful words on the playground, benches, signs and pathway at Richard B. Harrison Park. Swastikas and phrases such as “No to lgbtq, yes to fascism,” “I hate lgbtq” and “Heil Hitler” were written in black marker in the park, located just west of Wellington Road along the Thames River, along with spray paint on a park sign and path.
