Wilful damage

'The wilful damage to the Conservative signs in the Qualicum area the past weeks convinces me even more to vote for them'

While driving from my home into Qualicum Beach on Oct. 7, about 4 p.m, I noticed a very long row of NDP Gord Johns/Tom Mulcair signs along Hwy 19A heading northeast after Yambury Road and (surprise, surprise) the Conservative John Duncan’s signs along that stretch and along Village Way were again knocked down. The wilful damage to the Conservative signs in the Qualicum area the past weeks convinces me even more to vote for them. I am sure the other political parties do not condone the amount of vandalism taking place, but who wants to vote for a candidate where it’ possible that some of that party’s other supporters are such immature vandals with such total disregard for the law and the democratic process.
