The morning after Remembrance Day, Toronto police say they’re investigating an act of vandalism on the cenotaph simply outside Old City Hall.
On Tuesday morning, the phrases “ye broke faith” and “with us” had been seen spray-painted on two sides of the monument.
The phrases seem to reference the road, “If ye break faith with us who die,” from John McCrae’s poem “In Flanders Fields.”
On Monday morning, a Remembrance Day ceremony was held to honour fallen troopers of the First World War and a whole bunch of individuals had been in attendance. Wreaths and flags remained outside the historic constructing, situated at Bay and Queen streets, the day after and are seen within the photos capturing the spray-painted phrases.
Investigators confirmed they acquired a name relating to the vandalism at 7 a.m.
The matter is underneath investigation, police mentioned.
No additional data has been offered by officers up to now.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford commented on the matter on Twitter.
