Vandals defaced the construction site for the Memorial to the Victims of Communism in Ottawa, Canada, with the message “communism will win.”
The message was placed on a fence sign for the forthcoming monument. The vandals also included three hammer and sickle symbols.
The memorial’s construction is administered by the National Capital Commission, a federal Crown corporation charged, in part, with maintenance of statues and monuments in Canada’s capital city. It was launched, in part, by Tribute to Liberty, a nonprofit organization which promoted the idea for the memorial and helped raise funds for its construction.
Tribute to Liberty shared a photo of the vandalism on its Facebook page.
