THIS weekend was not the first time Mayor Sam Katz has been targeted by anti-Semitic attacks.
March 2008: At a public protest surrounding Winnipeg's operating budget, one man showed up at city hall with a sign showing Katz with a moustache, wearing a German army cap. Katz, whose parents survived the Holocaust, said he was disgusted by the sign and called on the man to apologize.
July 2008: The mayor was again targeted by anti-Semitic imagery, after a sign bearing a swastika -- surrounded by the words 'Danger' and 'Katz' -- was placed in an Ellice Avenue apartment building. Katz did not press for legal action. "He has very thick skin," a spokesman said. "He accepts the fact that there is intolerance and racism that's prevalent in aspects of our society."
