Mischief In The Men’s Room
This time, Miscou lighthouse in New Brunswick (Canada) has become the latest victim of vandalism. Fortunately, it was only in the restrooms at the site and not the lighthouse proper. But that doesn’t matter. There should never be any destruction at historic properties. Ever. Miscou Lighthouse boasts the only Fresnel lens (Third Order) in an operating lighthouse in the province. And underwent a major renovation to make it a tourist attraction last year, including a major environmental cleanup at the site. A paved parking area large enough for tour buses, a deck around the lighthouse and washroom facilities and a large grassy area were completed this past summer.
From the Royal Canadian Mounted Police:
During the night of October 10 to 11, 2009, one or more individuals broke into the washroom of the Miscou lighthouse, which is located at the end of Route 113, in New Brunswick. The individual(s) broke both exterior doors as well as the stalls and the flooring. They also poured soap on the floor. Similar mischiefs had been reported during the previous summer season. The help of the population is essential to protect that historical site. Anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of the individual(s) is asked to contact the RCMP at 506-393-3000 or, to remain anonymous, to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
If you can help, please contact the RCMP with any information. Don’t let our history be destroyed by punks.
