“It’s sad that people would do something like that, that people in today’s society still don’t accept everybody,” said Tarsem Goraya, a spokesperson for the temple. “It’s sad; some people have a sick mind.”

Police said they’re still in the initial stages of the investigation but believe the vandalism happened overnight. Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP at 250-762-3300.
