A Burlington man is accused of vandalizing a Toronto mosque twice, on October 6 and 12.

This mosque is located near the intersection of Danforth and Donlands avenues in the east of the city. The police believe this was an act motivated by hatred.

The man allegedly painted hateful symbols on the facade of the mosque on October 6. Then, on the 12th, he allegedly left hateful writings.

Toronto police chief Myron Demkiw pointed out in a publication on the network X (ex-Twitter) that the investigators consulted the specialized unit of hateful crimes and treat this case-which involves symbols and hateful messages painted on a mosque-as a crime presumed by hatred.
