Poster vandals get creative in Quebec election campaign
Extensive vandalism prompts creation of Trash Ta Pancarte website
Quebec election campaigns tend to see their fare share of politically-inspired vandalism, but the 2014 Quebec election campaign seems to have sparked new levels of ingenuity when it comes to defacing campaign posters.
The vandalism was extensive enough to prompt the creation of Facebook and Tumblr page — Trash Ta Pancarte — which collects and shares photos of defaced campaign posters.
The vandalism isn't exclusive to one party — Coalition Avenir Québec, the Parti Québécois, the Quebec Liberal Party and Québec Solidaire have all been targeted.
While some Quebecers have chosen to express themselves through vandalism, others have opted for other, less-destructive means.
An altered image of Pauline Marois in a hijab sparked an online buzz last week after Montrealer Marina Totino turned to Photoshop to make a statement about the Parti Québécois's controversial secular charter.
