Signs are vandalized every election. Usually just someone trying to have a little “fun”, a little risky behaviour – and probably the same thing isĀ happeningĀ this time around for the RMWB Municipal Elections. But could there be something else going on?

The Fort McMurray Today recently published an article titled “Election campaign signs vandalize“:

It’s only been a week since the kick off to election campaigning, but Mayor Melissa Blake’s camp is reporting numerous vandalized signs, which it says seem to have been targeted.

Kyle Harrietha, the sign manager for Blake’s campaign, said volunteers are seeing up to a dozen a day in vandalized signs which they have noticed since Thursday.

“It looked like it was a targeted sort of thing where they went after every single sign because it was such a large area,” Harrietha said.

Now it could just be random, and it could not be. Other candidates are reporting vandalized signs…. but what do you think? Have you seen any possible targeted action? Do you have any good pics of signs down for the count?
