80 graves damaged at Gatineau cemetery
« on: December 02, 2009, 11:08:52 PM »

Second cemetery in the region damaged by vandals withina week! Unbelievable!

My grandparents Legault and great grandparents Charron are buried in Ste Rose-de-Lima. Stone is pretty huge so not likely damaged

A very disturbing trend.
