SUDBURY, Ont. — An Ontario Conservative candidate says his campaign office was vandalized.

Fred Slade is running in the federal riding of Sudbury.

He says anti Conservative messages were painted on the windows and the doors of the campaign office.

Slade uploaded a photo of his campaign headquarters to Facebook, calling the incident "very disturbing."

I was just notified our Campaign Headquarters was attacked by vandals, this is very disturbing.

Slade says he isn't sure exactly when this weekend the vandalism occurred.

Slade says police are investigating and have told him they are looking to contact a person of interest in connection with the incident.

He calls the vandalism disturbing but says it hasn't knocked his campaign off course.

The Sudbury riding was won by former New Democrat Glenn Thibeault in the 2011 election but he has since jumped to Ontario provincial politics to serve in Kathleen Wynne's Liberal government.
