This is a sickening story of racial prejudice and cruelty the person responsible for this should be prosecuted and jailed.It seems that after two hundred years the persecution of the native American Indian is still on going to day.

I have placed adds in Used Victoria.com, and from my expierince the adds are NOT screened. Only when someone clicks the inappropriate flag, it is reviewed by customer service. Hope this goes to court!

This is so shameful and embarrassing for me, as a Canadian.
And yet, with a federal example from a Conservative government that refuses to ratify the UN Convention on the Rights of Indigenous People and still ignores the appalling living conditions it created in many rural, northern reserve 'communities', it is no surprise.
I really hope the RCMP and other authorities will move forward with investigating this.
Then again, our national police force has a horrific record of its own racist acts against First Peoples (not just in the past).
