Mounties are investigating after a North Vancouver high school was vandalized with a swastika and an apparent bomb threat over the weekend.
The spray-painted graffiti was discovered Sunday at Carson Graham Secondary, raising concerns about safety among some parents in the community.
One scrawled message reads “no one is happy here… we need a explosive solution (sic),” but the meaning behind others is harder to discern.
While one area of the school was marked with a Nazi symbol, another was tagged with “Germany cheated in FIFA.”
On Monday, principal Karim Hachlaf sent an email to parents assuring them there’s no danger to students and confirming no classes have been canceled over the vandalism.
“The RCMP have identified the individuals responsible and have informed me there is no threat to the Carson Graham community,” Hachlaf wrote.
Administrators will be working with Mounties to deal with “this serious matter,” the principal added.
