Thompson Citizen in Manitoba condemns 'anti-aboriginal racists and haters' online
Staff with the Thompson Citizen say they could not accept what some people were writing on the newspaper's Facebook page, but they couldn't control what was being posted.
"We're leaving because for some time commenters have been posting virulently racist anti-aboriginal comments on our page and tagging photos in a similar way, including our profile photo of the Thompson Citizen building this morning," editor John Barker wrote in an editorial posted on the paper's website Thursday.
"It ends here. This newspaper is not going to stand by and let anti-aboriginal racists and haters spew their evil on a vehicle we're facilitating them using."
