People with Liberal signs on their lawns had their houses and cars vandalized, including phone lines and car brake lines cut. Some drivers narrowly escaped accident. The only thing linking the victims was their political signs. Police are appealing to the public for information. The candidate in that riding, Carolyn Bennett, is a well-respected doctor and the incumbent Member of Parliament.
I hope that Mr. Harper, our Conservative Prime Minister, gets right on this case of home-grown Canadian terrorism. In some of the cars that had their brake lines sabotaged, infant or child seats were clearly visible. Anyone who harms, or tries to harm, members of the public to make a political point is a terrorist.
Similar cowardly and potentially fatal attacks were carried out in Guelph around August 25th. Guelph is 90 minutes away by car.
