Police are seeking suspects responsible for extensive damage done to the houseboat information kiosk on the Trans-Canada Highway.

Cpl. J.R. Lechky says this “senseless vandalism” is believed to have been done sometime over the night of April 21/22 and, based on evidence found at the scene, involved multiple individuals. The destruction included glass doors and windows were smashed with rocks, and a fire extinguisher was discharged within the structure.

“It’s stuff like this that kind of makes you really frustrated,” said Lechky, encouraging anyone with any information that might assist with this investigation to contact the local detachment at 250-832-2878, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-6044.
