Derogatory comments were smeared across the church.

“This is not art. This is a poor excuse for attention,” said Cpl. Dal Hutchinson of Halifax District RCMP, in a statement. “There are more appropriate ways to express yourself. This is not one of them.”

Two other churches in the Halifax Regional Municipality were also vandalized.
