Vandalism has forced the Village of Telkwa to move all of its memorial benches indoors for the winter earlier than usual.
A message posted to the village Facebook page says the benches, which are meant to commemorate community members who have died, were targeted once again over the weekend. One of the benches was recovered by a good samaritan after it was thrown in the river.
Benches and picnic tables in both Riverside and Eddy parks were hit by vandals the weekend before last as well.
Anyone with information about the incidents should contact RCMP or the Village of Telkwa at 250 846-5212.
