Graffiti (Tagging) is not art.
It is a criminal offence when put on property without permission and, when left unchecked, creates many more problems. If you have any information about taggers in Campbell River, please contact Crime Stoppers.
It would appear that many of our active taggers display a lack of social conscience or understanding that writing their tag on someone else's property is a violation of, not only the criminal code, but the victims themselves. The small business owner who has to replace clean up his property every morning, a public transit system that has to replace etched windows, a school board that cannot buy new computer equipment or sports supplies, because they are spending a quarter of a million dollars each school year to clean up graffiti vandalism. Who is the real victim? The community is. We must make our active taggers understand that they are part of the community and, therefore, they are victimizing themselves!
