Calgary Muslim Candidate’s Campaign Office Vandalized

The Calgary Sun – September 12, 2010
Vandals tossed a chunk of concrete through the front window of mayoral hopeful Naheed Nenshi’s campaign office early Sunday morning, hours after several of his signs were damaged and stolen throughout the northwest. Stopping short of calling it an attack against his Muslim faith, Nenshi noted the vandalism did come on the anniversary of Sept. 11.
According to spokesman Stephen Carter, volunteers on Nenshi’s campaign team saw a man and a woman in a black truck cutting signs down and taking them on Saturday night while using anti-Muslim slurs. Shards of broken glass littered the floor of Nenshi’s headquarters on 16 Ave. N.E. when workers arrived Sunday morning but he doesn’t think any of his political rivals were behind the attack.
