Vandals damage MLA’s office in Rupert

  • Jul. 14, 2006 10:00 a.m.

Vandals broke the front door to North Coast MLA Gary Coons’s Prince Rupert office early Friday morning (July 14), but it looks like nothing was taken.
Mr. Coons told the Observer he was awoken at 3 am Friday by a call from the RCMP informing him of the incident. He immediately went to the office, which he shares with federal MP Nathan Cullen, and spent an hour picking up shattered glass. He then waited there until morning and called a repairman, who came and installed a new front door.
It looks like the vandal simply picked up a piece of loose ceramic tile and tossed it through the office entrance, Mr. Coons said. He does not think the incident was politically motivated.
