Cenotaph vandalized in Toronto

Category: 

TORONTO—Police in Toronto say a cenotaph commemorating war dead has been vandalized.

Const. Alex Li said officers were called to the area this morning, less than 24 hours after hundreds gathered nearby for a Remembrance Day ceremony.

Li says the words “Ye broke faith” were spray-painted on the monument—an apparent reference to the poem In Flanders Fields.

Police are asking for the public's help to find the person responsible.

Li said the graffiti is disrespectful to both veterans and current members of the Canadian Armed Forces.
