Hate crimes unit called in after purported animal-rights group threatens to poison food in Chinatown

[National Post]

Immigration Minister Jason Kenney plans to dine at the Forestview
restaurant on Dundas Street Sunday after a purported animal-rights
group threatened to poison food in Chinatown establishments.

The Toronto police hate crimes unit has reportedly launched an
investigation after the city’s Chinese Business Association received a
threatening letter from the group, rife with unsubstantiated claims
and racist slurs.

"We are a radical group of 'concerned' who protect all wildlife.
Warning to y’all. We now have folks in your chinatowns spreading rat
poison on meat, fish, fruit and vegetables," states the letter, a copy
of which has been posted to the internet. "Hopefully some of you will
be sick as a dog."
