An anti-Semitic attack originally called "the most brazen" the city had seen was staged by the owners of the restaurant that reported it, Winnipeg police say.

All three members of the family that owns BerMax Caffé and Bistro on Corydon Avenue have been arrested and charged with public mischief since the incident was initially reported last week. The family, however, insists they didn't fake anything.

Winnipeg police Chief Danny Smyth said Wednesday the attack was staged.

"The anti-Semitic graffiti and vandalism were also falsely reported as being done by outside suspects," Smyth said.

"We found evidence of a crime. It just wasn't a hate crime," said Smyth, adding the police expended considerable resources investigating and took the report seriously.

Antisemitism is virtually non existent in Canada and the US these days, so any report of it gets a side eye from me.

Ironically, the top story on BBC News today is a fatal attack on a synagogue near San Diego.

(Unfortunately "lunatic fringe" is not the same as "non-existent".)

This post aged worse than a Long Island tanning afficionado.

Tbf I made that post before the incident the other day, but I stand by it. There is no safer place to be Jewish than North America, and we are safer every year.

There’s a difference between that and “virtually non existent”.

Unless you yourself are Jewish it really isn't appropriate to comment about how safe we are or are not. I think we as Jewish-Americans can judge that better than you.

Of course it does, and I still think we're safer than ever and that antisemitism in the United States and Canada is virtually nonexistent.

Virtually non existent would mean that these shootings would not occur.
