The abhorrent and racist ad, equating native kids with vermin, titled Native Extraction Service, was posted on the website , but was taken down by 1:38 p.m. CT on Thursday.
It was headlined by a picture of three young aboriginals and the text went like this:
"Have you ever had the experience of getting home to find those pesky little buggers hanging outside your home, in the back alley or on the corner???
Well fear no more, with my service I will simply do a harmless relocation. With one phone call I will arrive and net the pest, load them in the containment unit (pickup truck) and then relocate them to their habitat.
It doesn't matter if they need to be dropped off on Salter (Street, in Winnipeg's North End) or the rez, I will go that extra mile. The North End of Winnipeg is where many city dwellers of First Nations descent live.
My service is free because I want to live in the same city you do, a clean one,"
Naturally leaders of the community are vexed about this and rightfully so. An investigation will follow.
