Const. Maury Tyre said the actions of the taggers are “reprehensible.”

“The hate speech that was posted referencing people’s culture and people’s sexual orientation is entirely unacceptable,” he said. “It would seem that the taggers took aim at people with physical disabilities, as well.”

Tyre said police hope that there witnesses to the incident or that someone noticed someone with paint on their clothing or hands.

“This kind of action really shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone in the community and we need to the public’s help to hold these taggers responsible.”

Call Campbell River RCMP at 250-286-6221 with any information.
