The University of Guelph says its campus police are investigating after numerous “disrespectful” posters were placed around school grounds.

Brenda Whiteside, the university’s associate vice-president of student affairs, says the posters were offensive and not consistent with the values of the school.

The Central Student Association at the university says the posters made false statements about the Prophet Mohammed, and also condemned a variety of identities and groups.

The posters were removed by campus police, and they’re asking anyone with information to contact them at 519 824-4120 ext. 52245.
