Vandals hit library, schools, water plant

The library in Notre Dame de l’Île Perrot was closed on Sunday after vandals smashed about 10 of its windows overnight on Saturday.

“Unfortunately, there are no security cameras there, so we don’t know much about what happened, or who could have done it,” said Éric Leclerc, a spokesperson for the town.

Leclerc said the library was closed Sunday so that workers could repair the damage and replace the windows. But the incident was one of many to occur on the island at about the same time.

Sûreté du Québec Sgt. Joyce Kemp said windows were smashed at École La Perdriolle on Don Quichotte Blvd. in Île Perrot and at École de la Samare on Virginie-Roy Blvd. in N.D.I.P. In the latter case, there was also a break-in and one item was stolen, but later recovered, Kemp said. She couldn’t specify what was stolen, saying it might harm the investigation if she did.

Leclerc said the water filtration station on Île Perrot also had windows smashed, though Kemp said she didn’t have knowledge of the incident.

She added several people have been questioned about the vandalism, but no arrests have so far been made.

Kemp didn’t have an estimate on the damage, only to say it was several thousand dollars.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the SQ.
