A liberal candidate from Ottawa is urging people to be respectful during the provincial election campaign after her campaign posters were vandalized this weekend.
Liberal Ottawa candidate Vanier Lucille Collard shared photos on Twitter of her defaced campaign posters.
“I was having a great Mother’s Day spending time with my family. Until I saw several of my campaign posters vandalized,” Collard said on Twitter.
“We may disagree, but we must remain respectful.”
Vandalized campaign signs are nothing new during election campaigns in Ottawa.
During last summer’s federal election campaign, liberal and conservative candidates in Ottawa reported vandalized campaign signs.
Ottawa police say tampering with an election poster is an offense under Canada’s Penal Code.
