The office of Provencher MP Vic Toews is refusing comment on a sign of the Public Safety Minister that was recently vandalized.
Sometime during the last week of March the sign located along the Trans-Canada Highway just west of the Highway #12 overpass was painted with graffiti to read “Vic Toews is a bad person”. His photograph was also altered with spray on devil horns.
The sign has since been covered up and expected to be taken down immediately according to Toew’s office staff.
While Toew’s staff is remaining mute on the matter, the MP has come under extreme public scrutiny after last month’s cyber attacks saw groups like the infamous “Anonymous” step up and call him out over a proposed online surveillance bill.
An interim Liberal staffer was named as the culprit behind a Vikileaks30 Twitter account that surged into public prominence in the wake of the tabling of new legislation last month that would have allowed increased police surveillance of the Internet and those who use it.
While Toews has remained quiet about his personal life in the past, the Twitter world was exposed to details of his divorce including many alleged affairs.
“I have never responded publicly to the specific allegations made in these affidavits nor will I ever do so,” Toews stated. “I will be fully accountable for any responsibility that I bear for the breakdown of my previous marriage but that accountability is not something I owe to the public generally or to my political opponents in particular.”
Despite the many personal attacks, Toews maintains he will continue to carry out his duties as Provencher MP and as the Minister of Public Safety for Canada.
Vandals altered this sign located along Highway #1, just west of the Highway #12 turn-off.
