‘DISGUSTING’: Cops probing vandalism at Toronto cenotaph

Someday after Remembrance Day, Toronto Police are investigating an act of vandalism on the cenotaph at Outdated Metropolis Corridor.

Somebody sprayed paint on the monument, which hosted a ceremony on Monday to honour Canada’s battle lifeless.


“Ye broke religion” was printed in paint over the dates of the First World Battle dealing with Queen St. W. Written on the again of the monument was “With us.” The road seems to be a model of John McCrae’s poem In Flanders Fields, ‘If ye break religion with us who die.’

It was unclear when the vandalism occurred. No arrests have been made.


Premier Doug Ford tweeted that it was “disgusting” to see the monument vandalized.

“Disgusting to see a monument to our heroic veterans disrespected by this shameful act of vandalism,” Ford wrote.

“I belief our police to seek out whoever is accountable and produce them to justice.”
