Prairie Lily vandalized while docked on river, damage estimated in thousands
Canada
An owner of the Prairie Lily says repairs worth thousands of dollars have to be done after the riverboat was vandalized in Saskatoon.

The owners of the Prairie Lily are looking at thousands of dollars in damages from some vandalism earlier this week.

A broken security camera notified Saskatoon police of the incident around 2:30 a.m. CT on April 16.

While docked on the South Saskatchewan River, vandals broke windows, threw equipment in the water and caused other damage to the riverboat.

“The police, actually the bicycle patrol, had heard the alarm from downtown here and they came down,” Prairie Lily owner Mike Steckhan said.

“The commissionaires were already here, but whoever it was managed to run away and escape before they arrived.”
