Victoria’s People’s Party of Canada (PPC) candidate says the party will “not be deterred by fringe elements trying to silence our voice.”

Culbert calls the theft “particularly disturbing” and says the silencing of voices “is a dangerous thing.”

“Democracy is at stake when people are trying to silence a legitimate, national, coast-to-coast party,” she said.

Culbert says the campaign has filed a report with the Victoria Police Department.
