Cenotaph vandal suspect said he did it to protest firing of Don Cherry - 2019-11-15
On Tuesday morning, the words "ye broke faith" and "with us" were seen spray-painted onto two sides of the monument located in downtown Toronto at Queen and Bay streets. The words appear to reference the line, "If ye break faith with us who die," from John McCrae's poem "In Flanders Fields."
Officers with the Toronto Police Service confirmed they received a call regarding the vandalism at 7 a.m. on Tuesday. City officials were later seen power washing the cenotaph, removing the paint, in the noon hour that same day.
