Images sent to Liberal candidate Maggie Farrington’s office in Fort McMurray.
UPDATE 2:52pm. Fort McMurray RCMP have confirmed the incident has been reported and is under investigation
Fort McMurray-Cold Lake Liberal MP candidate Maggie Farrington’s campaign office was vandalized today with hateful images, the candidate said on social media.
The images were sent to her office in Fort McMurray and one said, “Those who sell out their race and their country should be purged from Canada.”
Farrington responded on her social media.
“Overnight our campaign office was vandalized with racist, misogynist hate speech and death threats to “purge” us for being Liberal,” Farrington said via Twitter.
“This is unacceptable. We live in Canada and diversity of people, opinions, and beliefs is what makes Canada great. But this racist, white nationalist, misogynist, threatening BS is way over the line.”
