The Surrey RCMP is looking for suspects in the vandalism of an anti-abortion display that was on private property in Cloverdale.
Dozens of wooden crosses, displayed on bales of hay at the corner of 188th Street and Fraser Highway, have been smashed to bits.
This is the second time vandals have destroyed this display. The latest attack happened sometime over the weekend.
Ironically, representatives of the group behind the roadside display were going to dismantle it themselves on Sunday morning, but when they arrived all they found was wreckage.
"This was a completely selfish act, which essentially symbolizes the tragedy of abortion itself," said Mike Schouten, campaign director of an outfit called WeNeedaLAW.ca
"Unfortunately it is in the best interests of some to destroy that which is not wanted," Schouten
Mike Schouten said.
"I would like to think that most residents of this fine city would not condone such a cowardly act," he said. "It's unfortunate that some people have taken it upon themselves to make their views known in such a selfish manner rather than engage in civil, rational and respectful debate."
