A number of headstones in a cemetery in Fredericton, N.B. have been vandalized, all located in the section devoted to veterans. Authorities still have no leads as to who is behind the vandalism.
“I feel like barfing,” Don Swain, president of the legion in Fredericton, told CTV News.
Over 20 headstones at the Forest Hill Cemetery have been damaged or defaced, some of which are more than 30 years old.
Swain is outraged by the graffiti and said he demands swift and severe punishment for those responsible, if and when they are apprehended.
Employees at the Forest Hill Cemetery said they will be removing the graffiti over the next several days.
In the meantime, they are attempting to figure out the best way to remove the graffiti without damaging the headstones.
This story is unfolding, more to come.
