      Some residents in the Richmond neighbourhood of Steveston were shocked to receive flyers at home calling on white people to save their city.

      The RCMP has launched an investigation into the flyers, which claimed that whites were being marginalized by the growing number of Chinese people.

      B.C. NDP Leader John Horgan issued a statement early this morning saying that he's "angered and saddened" by the news.

      "I hope that I speak for people of every political stripe in British Columbia when I say there is no room for these hateful acts in British Columbia," Horgan said. "All members of the legislature recently stood together to condemn hateful and racist policies of the past—policies like the head tax. We must not allow similar acts to take root in the present. It is up to all of us to stand up and say no to hate."
