Racist graffiti found at Michael Garron construction site

TORONTO — EllisDon has issued a statement deploring a second racist incident in the past 10 days at the Michael Garron Hospital project in east Toronto.

The incident involved a racist message written in a washroom stall on the site. The graffiti was found Thursday.

“EllisDon condemns this despicable racist act. Our people are not just our employees — they are our family. We know we need to do better to protect their safety, both physically and emotionally,” the statement said.

“Upon learning of this incident we immediately boarded up the area and removed the graffiti. We have initiated an investigation and have already begun to upgrade the security and surveillance on the site, both to catch these criminals and to ensure that every worker is safe from discrimination, hate and bigotry.”

EllisDon also announced it will be offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who comes forward with information that leads to the identification of the individuals involved in acts.

“We will not stop until the perpetrators are found and permanently evicted from our industry,” the statement added.
