Jewish, and may have been the victim of anti-semiticvandalism during the campaign when some of his signs were spray-painted with Swastikas. It is not clear if the vandalism was directed against Katz on a personal level or against the Conservative Party, which has sometimes been depicted by its opponents as intolerant of minority groups. Signs belonging to Conservative candidate Rick Fuschi, who is not Jewish, were similarly defaced in a neighbouring riding. The vandalism was condemned by Canadian Jewish Congressleader Bernie Farber, who was quoted as saying, "Whether the target is Katz as a Jew or as a Conservative, the message is unacceptable. The idea of any Canadian comparing any Canadian political party with the Nazis is outrageous." ("Windsor Star", 15 June 2004).
