The Ottawa Police Service’s hate crimes and prejudice unit has accused an Ottawa man of deliberately promoting hate in connection with a series of anti-Semitic posters that have appeared on the west end of the city.

Willful promotion of hate, punishable by imprisonment for not more than two years, is a charge that must be approved by the Ontario Attorney General.

Approval was given on June 13, and police later charged Paul Koppe, 29, with intentionally promoting hate.

In December, Koppe was charged with 26 counts of hate-motivated harm after anti-Semitic posters were placed in public spaces on the west side of the city late last year.
