White Students Union posters found at Toronto schools

Today, students at all three of Toronto's major universities found "White Students Union" posters littering their campuses. These signs featured two young men in winter coats, with the CN Tower in background, as well as a web address.

The posters have appeared at York, Ryerson and the University of Toronto. The group in question, also known online as the Students for Western Civilization, isn't registered at any of these schools.

Officials at both York and Ryerson pulled down the flyers. "I can confirm they're not a sanctioned club. We don't condone this sort of thing," Ryerson spokesperson Michael Forbes told the National Post.

While information about this so-called organization is relatively sparse, its Facebook page includes nearly 450 members and its website says it's based in the city and is made up of students and alumni from Toronto's universities.
