Hours after Remembrance Day ceremonies took place, Toronto police are investigating an act of vandalism to a war memorial.
The Victory Peace war memorial in Coronation Park was defaced with the words “Canada will burn praise Allah” written on it. The message was written in all capital letters and it appears that black marker was used.
The City works department was called to the park at Lake Shore Blvd. and Strachan Avenue to clean it up.
Someone walking through the park noticed it and reported the incident.
The monument itself is bronze and was constructed in the mid-1990’s.
Police don’t have any suspects at the moment.
