This antisemitic poster was found in Winnipeg at Broadway and Edmonton on September 14, 2012 (we are not sure at this time how many posters were put up downtown). Below is the text of the poster and a comment by CISA's Director.
Since Mayor Sam Katz was elected to office in 2004, hundreds of millions of dollars have been funneled from City Hall into the pockets of the following people, primarily through untendered contracts and shady land deals.
Richard M. Leipsic
The gross misconduct of the Mayor’s office & City Hall has gone on for too long. Firegate is the final straw that will break their backs.
Once the harsh lights of scrutiny of the Auditor General and the RCMP are turned towards City Hall, Sam Katz will be facing hard time at Stony Mountain and his cabal of cockroaches will be clutching their dirty money and running for cover.

CISA's Director has made the following public comment on the posters:
The posters found in Winnipeg's downtown area on September 14, 2012 are extremely disturbing and reflect a mindset that is deeply antisemitic. The posters target and therefore threaten specific individuals by name by placing them on a kind of "Jewish hit list." They make explicit reference to Adolf Hitler and employ classic antisemitic phrases and imagery as cues to the reader, such as "shady deals," "dirty money," "cabal of cockroaches." Antisemitism is a deeply embedded cultural code in Western society. One can clearly communicate a hateful, conspiratorial, antisemitic message without using the word "Jew" directly and that is precisely what these posters are designed to accomplish. They are also used to publicly demonize and humiliate these individuals as Jews (whether or not they are actually Jewish) and that is an outrageous and despicable act. The poster and its hateful message should be condemned in public by all principled people.
