Someone climbed scaffolding at the Church of Our Lady early Monday and left a Mohawk flag atop the north tower.
A compressor at the site was also damaged by turning it on and letting it run dry.
Exterior restoration work is taking place at the church. The flag was removed early yesterday by a construction worker, but the incident puzzled the church’s pastor. “I think they did it because it’s the highest point in the city,” said Father Dennis Noon.
A blue letter ‘A’ with a circle around it, usually a symbol of anarchy, was found spray-painted on the sidewalk outside both the church and Guelph MP Brenda Chamberlain’s constituency office. Chamberlain’s office was also vandalized during the Canada Day weekend.
