Vandalism and Cut Brake Lines Plague Liberal Ridings in Toronto
Graffiti, threatening phone calls and cut brake lines have all been aimed at Liberal supporters in the High Park area of Toronto over the last week. Six more incidents were reported since Sunday, when Toronto Police stated that numerous cars had had their brake lines cut.
Whoever is doing this is targeting people with Liberal election signs on their front yard, and in one case a local MP.
There have been at least six more reports of vandalism – including the cutting of brake lines and graffiti defacing houses – in Toronto's St. Paul's and Parkdale-High Park ridings.
These reports come on the heels of a rash of incidents reported in St. Paul's on Saturday and Parkdale-High Park on Sunday. The victims all appeared to be Liberal supporters who had campaign signs on their lawns supporting their local Liberal candidates.
There have been more acts of intimidation directed at the campaign of Toronto Liberal candidate Carolyn Bennett.
Police are already investigating a number of acts of vandalism — including cutting the brake lines on cars — against Bennett supporters in Toronto's St. Paul's riding over the weekend.
