KELOWNA – One of the candidates running in Kelowna-Mission says her campaign signs are being systematically and deliberately vandalized.

Harwinder Sandhu is the B.C. NDP candidate for the Kelowna-Mission riding. She says last week several of her large and medium-sized campaign signs were sliced through with a blade.

Two signs were destroyed near Costco at the intersection of Highways 97 and 33 and another was taken from Springfield Road. Just this week another series of wire signs were broken on Gordon Drive.

Neither Harwinder nor her team of volunteers know who is doing it but say it is having an effect on the campaign.

“We have very little money and small individual donations, unlike the B.C. Liberal Party,” she says. “We don’t have a whole lot of corporations’ money to spend on our campaign and signs.”

None of the other candidates have reported any vandalism of their campaign signs.

Both sides of a large campaign sign were cut by a vandal last week.
