LETTER: Political sign vandalism ‘disgusting’

Those who run for office should be respected, says reader

I was shocked, saddened, and frankly disgusted by People’s Party of Canada candidate Jeremy Gustafson’s signs being defaced with absolutely untrue and hurtful words like “racist” and “Nazi” from Port Renfrew to Sooke and beyond. This included our own street corner in Shirley.

I know we are better than that sort of immature behavior, and no candidate should be subjected to it.

If you don’t like someone, don’t vote for him or her.

Everyone who has the courage to step up and run for office should be afforded respect.

I sincerely hope we won’t see this happen again, as the PPC will not go away and will continue to build as a party.
