Amidst a heated campaign election period, several lawn signs for Ontario Liberal MPP Harinder Malhi were reportedly stolen and dumped in King City.
Malhi, who is seeking re-election in Brampton North in June, recently tweeted a video of the clean-up.
Bringing our stolen Campaign lawn signs back home to #BramptonNorth from an empty field in King City. Whoever brought them here is interfering with democracy and the hard work of volunteers. That's not the way we roll at @OntLiberal #brampoli #onelxn pic.twitter.com/jhGHqr6Cf6
