Village of Canton Condemns Racist Messages Left on Sidewalk

July 29, 2020

This morning, two racist chalk messages were discovered on sidewalks in the Village of Canton. One was written on Court Street near Main Street and one on Judson Street at the St. Lawrence County DSS Building.

This is incredibly disturbing and has no place in the Village of Canton or anywhere else for that matter. It is unacceptable and we will not tolerate this or any other display of racism in our community. We are working to find those responsible.

The St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department and the Canton Village Police are jointly investigating. If anyone has information concerning these two messages, please contact the Sheriff at 315-379-2222 or the Canton Police at 315-386-4561.
