Vandals target William Lyon Mackenzie King home at Woodside National Historic Site in Kitchener
Windows smashed, doors damaged but nothing appears to have been taken, police say
Vandals have targeted the boyhood home of Canada's 10th prime minister, William Lyon MacKenzie King, smashing windows and damaging three doors.
Police were on scene at the Woodside National Historic Site Monday morning. In total, 66 panes of glass were broken in ground floor windows. Some windows that had multiple panes of glass had each pane smashed. As well, the doors to the administration offices, the main entrance to the site and a side door were damaged.
Officers said it did not appear anyone entered the home and there was no report of theft.
The restored Victorian home, which dates back to early 1890s, is filled with King family heirlooms.
Police responded to an alarm overnight from Sunday to Monday.
Officers at the scene were taking fingerprints, including from a mangled piece of eavestrough, which was believed to have been used in the vandalism.
Police are looking for anyone with information. Witnesses are asked to call police or Crime Stoppers.
