Cold Lake Mosque hit by vandals, again
Community came together to clean graffiti off in Oct. 2014
The mosque in Cold Lake, Alta., was scrawled with the words "Go Home" between Friday night and Saturday morning, police say — and it's not the first time that it has been vandalized.
The CIBC about a block away, also on 50th Ave., had "Catch me if you can" also written with an orange marker inside the ATM area.

Police are reviewing video from several locations and say they are looking at the incidents as criminal mischief.
Residents of the community — which is about 300 kilometres northeast of Edmonton — may have a sense of deja vu as the exact same words were scrawled on the mosque about a year ago along with other racist messages and smashed windows.

At that time, community members rallied around the mosque, coming together to clean the graffiti and offer support to Muslims in the area.
RCMP are asking for the public's help in solving these crimes.
