Oakville-North Burlington NDP candidate Lenaee Dupuis had two of her large election signs vandalized on Sunday.
Located on residential property in Oakville, the federal candidate’s signs had “No commies” written in large green letters over the mainly orange background.
“I was so disappointed to see this uncalled for vandalism,” Dupuis responded in a tweet on Sunday. I will fight fair and for good, and never would I expect this sort of behaviour from my supporters in the #oakvillenorthburlingtonriding,” Dupuis said in a tweet on Sunday.
Dupuis added that here commitment to the people of her riding is to pledge to have a positive campaign.
She then tweeted out a quote from former NDP federal leader Jack Layton on the 10-year anniversary of his death.
“My friends, love is better than anger,” the quote read. “Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.”
