Brake lines cut and cars keyed at homes of Toronto Liberal supporters

"Vandals target Liberal supporters." A very disturbing report. Brake lines being cut and cars being keyed at homes with Liberal signs on their lawns. Phone and cable lines cut. Houses spray painted. We clearly need to be on the lookout in our neighbourhoods.

This is the second major set of acts of vandalism over the course of this campaign, the first being in Guelph in August with identical tactics.

We've also read accounts from Garth Turner, who's written about being stalked as he campaigns.

While there is no information to suggest who's doing this, it is clear that it is now looking a lot less like a series of random acts but a concerted, organized effort to intimidate Liberal voters. If that's the goal, it won't work.
