Anti-Semitic incidents rise in Canada

TORONTO -- Anti-Semitism in Canada is on the rise, and much of it has gone digital, according to the latest audit by B'nai Brith Canada.
In total, 1,306 anti-Jewish incidents were reported to the human rights group in 2010 -- a 3.3 percent increase over the previous year.
B'nai Brith's League for Human Rights tallied 965 cases of harassment, 317 incidents of vandalism and 24 cases of violence.
"Incidents were reported across the country in synagogues, schools, playgrounds, on campus, at street rallies, sporting events, workplaces, even reaching people's own homes," said Frank Dimant, CEO of B'nai Brith Canada, at the release Monday of the group's annual audit of anti-Semitic incidents.
The numbers also represent a four-fold increase over the past decade.
