KKK flyers left on doorsteps of Fraser Valley homes

Residents of some Fraser Valley neighbourhoods woke up to find flyers on their doorsteps that appeared to be distributed by a branch of the Ku Klux Klan.
Plastic Ziploc baggies were found outside dozens of homes in Mission and Abbotsford Monday morning, containing rice and slogan-filled photocopies.
Police said they believe the rice was left to weigh the bags down.
The notes featured slogans including "I am white and I am proud," and "I love my white skin and my race!"
The flyers appear to be from a group called the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, and feature a phone hotline and website at the bottom.
The URL listed on the poster pulls up a website featuring the N-word, racist cartoons and memes, and a message claiming that the KKK Knights are not a "hate group," but an organization against drugs, homosexuality, abortion and interracial relationships. The site also includes anti-Semitic messages.
Based on the phone number's area code, it appears that the group is based out of North Carolina.
Abbotsford police are investigating, and said the bags appear to have been distributed randomly.
The same flyer was also distributed in Chilliwack in July, launching a police investigation in that city.
