COGID-19 graffiti supporting public health measures, and criticizing the government’s handling of the epidemic in a Calgary park, has prompted police to search for those responsible.
On Saturday, spray-painted messages were scattered on an outdoor stage in Prince Island Park, “causing substantial damage to an over-used public park and facilities,” police said.
