One of the first reports posted online came from a reddit user, claiming this event happened in their hometown. The picture of the vandalized wall was removed by moderators, but the image has since went viral.

The image has sparked outrage over the audacity of the criminal to deface a memorial of heroes on Remembrance Day.

Furthermore, some has criticized the act as “moronic” as Canada has mostly vaccinated their military, and over 75% of all Canadians have had at least one does of the vaccine. Anyone with information about the vandalism is encouraged to contact authorities.
