Canadian Jewish officials expressed frustration at the sentence given to a man who vandalized a Jewish cemetery. The man, who toppled 25 Jewish tombstones and committed other acts of anti-Semitic vandalism with two younger partners, was prosecuted on five counts of mischief rather than on more serious charges of mischief against religious property, which would have required prosecutors to demonstrate motivation by hatred, bias or prejudice.
