On May 28, 2020 B’nai Brith Canada reported:

On Wednesday [May 27, 2020], a congregant visited the Sepharade Kol Yehouda synagogue in Côte St-Luc, Que. with his son to retrieve ritual items for use at home over the Shavuot holiday, which begins Thursday night. He was horrified to find Torah scrolls dumped on the floor, and other religious items stuffed into toilets… Since the synagogue has been closed for months on account of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is unclear precisely when the break-in and desecration occurred.

Update: Vandalism at Côte-St-Luc synagogue not motivated by anti-Semitism: Jewish groups
