A vandal defaced a west-end war memorial shortly after Remembrance Day ceremonies wrapped on Sunday.

“Canada will burn praise Allah,” was written with permanent marker across the monument in Coronation Park, near Lake Shore Blvd. W and Strachan Ave., Toronto Police said.

Cops were alerted to the damage by a passerby.

Mayor Rob Ford said he was sickened by the news of the war memorial being defaced.

“It really, really bothers me,” Ford said at City Hall on Monday.

“For someone to stoop to that level … people have sacrificed their lives for us to be here. It makes me absolutely sick.”

City of Toronto workers were on scene Sunday night cleaning the memorial.

Police are asking anyone with information to come forward by calling Crime Stoppers 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at, text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637).
