A suspicious fire broke out at Liberal MP Peter Fonseca’s Mississauga constituency office, according to police, on Tuesday morning.
At 4:19 a.m. Tuesday, emergency services were dispatched to a commercial plaza near Burnhamthrope and Tomken roads for a complaint of a fire, according to Peel Regional Police Const. Heather Cannon.
“Police and the fire department responded, and the fire was put out,” Cannon told CP24. “At this time, no one has been injured.”
She said detectives from Peel police and the Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office are investigating the incident.
The door to Fonseca’s office in the plaza was covered with a wooden board on Wednesday, along with the door to a neighbouring burger restaurant.
A security camera placed above Fonseca’s office appeared to be smeared in white or grey spray paint.
A police cruiser was still on the scene the next morning.
Investigators are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact them.
