Police seek mischief-maker after protest outside B.C. legislature last week

Police in Victoria are in search of a mischief-maker accused of vandalizing property outside the B.C. legislature after a protest last Friday.

Demonstrators gathered outside the building around 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 26 ahead of a visit from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who spent the afternoon touring flood-impacted areas of Abbotsford.

At the end of Trudeau’s meeting with Premier John Horgan, officers left the rally, according to a Tuesday news release from Victoria police.

They later heard reports of mischief on site and released two photos of a man suspected of damaging property that evening.
