Maybe boredom is starting to set in as Canada’s COVID-19 lockdown continues.
What else could explain why someone would cut down a tree in a city park, or topple tombstones in a cemetery?
On April 24, someone used an axe to chop down a tree in Cloverdale Athletic Park.
“Someone, on Friday night, cut down a large tree by the park picnic tables,” wrote Gord Hallam, in an email to Black Press Media. “They used an axe … I just can’t understand why?”
Rob Murray also sent in an email. “How senseless,” he remarked.
The tree was roughly 30-feet tall.
And sometime over the last week, grave markers were knocked over in Surrey Centre Cemetery. A total of seven, century-old tombstones were toppled by vandals.
