Town officials and hate crime experts are condemning a number of anti-immigrant posters that have been spotted around Whitby, especially in the community of Brooklin.

"All racism is dangerous rubbish," said Mayor Don Mitchell.

"This is not the Whitby I live in and certainly doesn't reflect the values of our town."

A resident who lives near Cochrane Street says they were walking in the area Wednesday when they made the troubling discovery of the posters, plastered to several mailboxes.
