Scumbags steal infant’s headstone

I was going to post this yesterday, but I didn’t want to ruin your whole week.

Martin Proctor reports that the lowest scum in Weston has stolen a tombstone from the gravesite at the St John the Evangelist excavation.

Needless to say, if you happen to see this in someone’s garage or backyard, I suspect the police would be interested. In the past, cemetery vandals in Ontario have faced charges of mischief, which, despite its quite mild-sounding name, can carry a prison sentence.
We should be so lucky.

  1. Thank you Martin for taking the picture. It is a thing of beauty as well as sadness, and deserving of respect.

  2. I’ve been trying to figure out how a cemetery in the middle of a thriving town could have been “lost” to its inhabitants in the first place. Local historians are also (apparently) still guessing. There’s a dynamic at play that speaks to how fragile and unimportant a society and its institutions really are.
