Cranbrook RCMP is warning everyone that vandalizing election signs is illegal.
This after an investigation began into reports of several election signs damaged signs around town.
Constable Katie Forgeron says this seems to happen every election.
“I don’t know if its just an opportunistic thing or people don’t like the candidates,” “If you don’t like the candidates, don’t vote for them. If you like the candidates, vote for them. But don’t damage property just to damage property.”
Those caught vandalizing signs can be charged with mischief under the criminal code and can also face charges under the Canada Elections Act.
