Sarah Eves took to Twitter criticizing the use of signs in an election campaign after one of her signs was vandalized when someone wrote ‘commie’ on it.
“I totally don’t understand this behaviour,” wrote Eves. “It does however re-affirm my belief that we should ban signs in future elections.”
Nearby, Conservative Party candidate for Kelowna-Lake Country, Tracy Gray, also found her signs scrawled on with spray-painted expletives endorsing the Green Party of Canada. However, no recommendation of banning signs was made by Gray.
Another of my signs destroyed when people wrote ‘commie’ on it.
I totally don’t understand this behaviour.
It does however re-affirm my belief that we should ban signs in future elections.
At the rate mine are being stolen and destroyed there will be none by e-day anyways

A candidate from the Liberal Party – who wants to force mandatory vaccines on Canadians and introduce vaccine passports – supports the removal of election signs? Well imagine our shock.
It’s ironic that Eves is mortified about someone calling her a “commie” on one of her signs, but proposes a solution right out of the communist playbook to ban election signs.
Perhaps the irony is lost on her, or perhaps she is just as clueless as her party leader on these sorts of things.
