UPEI Chaplaincy Centre vandalized with “disturbing and offensive” graffiti


Charlottetown police are investigating reports of graffiti at the University of Prince Edward Island Chaplaincy Centre. A statement from UPEI President Wendy M Rogers said that the graffiti was “disturbing and offensive” and demonstrated “antisemitism, Islamophobia, anti-Black racism, anti-Christian sentiment, sexual deviance, and threats of sexual violence.” Rogers maintained that this behaviour is unacceptable and falls outside of UPEI’s commitment to build a culture of trust, safety, and inclusion. UPEI is working to identify the perpetrators with the police and has taken action to enhance security at the Chaplaincy Centre and share information about supports with affected community members.
