A 110-pound woman on a dark stretch of the Alaska Highway, shivering all alone in the rain, committing vandalism on a bicycle. AKA Carrie Boles, criminal mastermind.

First off Carrie, nice job.

Those signs would have totally changed the outcome of the election. You completely saved the day. Actually, the electorate has long since decided their feelings on the current MP. Trashing every Leef sign in the Yukon would have no effect, positive or negative on his campaign.

Well, there is one effect. Taxpayers, including yourself, pay for those signs. You are literally perpetuating the practice you so openly revile.

You then follow up this asinine line of thought with the brilliant idea to commit the same crime, at the same time and place two nights in a row.

Pure genius Carrie, I’m impressed.

Unsurprisingly, you are caught red-handed like a silly teenager. Luckily, Leef graciously lets you walk on a fairly serious charge. So how do you repay his leniency?

You slam him on live radio, write letters to the newspaper and try to incite the national media to portray Leef and Conservatives in general as evil men in camouflage who like to hurt helpless women. One small detail, Carrie. You’ve forgotten a very damning statement from your CKRW interview, and I quote: “I was on the fourth sign (on the second night) and I saw two dark shapes approach me.”

Fourth sign. Second night of vandalism.

If Leef had been waiting like the masked vigilante you portray, why didn’t he grab you while trashing the first sign? Much more plausible is that he was down the road fixing damage you caused from the night before and in your fervor you were just too busy to notice.

Also, is it really that odd for a former RCMP officer to carry handcuffs while working at a site trashed by an unknown number of vandals? It actually kind of makes sense.

He didn’t bring the knife Carrie, you did.

Furthermore, you suggest an armed woman on a bicycle, trashing signs in a rainstorm at midnight is rational and totally excusable behavior in light of a “bad week at work.”

What happens next time you have a bad week Carrie? Theft? Arson? Fraud? If I was your employer, I’d be asking those very questions.

I’m sure your father the respected RCMP officer you openly praised in your letter to the Yukon News is so very proud to know his daughter has grown up to commit armed vandalism on a bicycle. Are these the “values that represent the roots and heart of Canadian culture” you were talking about?

Who’d have thought unaligned socialists were behind all the petty crime in Whitehorse?

Sadly, this incident perpetuates the stereotype of the entitled left-wing fanatic, who believes rules apply to everyone but themselves, which is really unfortunate because some smart people work with the NDP, like my sister.

What a fail Carrie, an outright embarrassing fail.
