Police investigate spray painting of racial slurs on Nova Scotia home

MONASTERY, N.S. — RCMP are investigating racial slurs against aboriginal people that were spray painted on a home in northern Nova Scotia.

Police in Antigonish say the graffiti appeared on a house and shed in Monastery on Tuesday night.

They say the graffiti was "racially and culturally insensitive" and included profanity and derogatory comments about aboriginal people.

Police say it's not a random act and are asking anyone with information about the case to call the RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
