I would be willing to bet dollars to doughnuts (from Donut Monster, of course), that the vandals are NOT from poor families.

During my 16 years service in the Canadian Army, I had the honour to command five recruit and basic training courses. The identical terms of the above wager are given for the assertion that the typical Army recruit comes from a much poorer family than the families of the vandals.

I am also the Treasurer and a member of the Board of Directors of Micah House, which provides short-term housing to refugees upon their initial arrival in Canada. Very few of whom are wealthy.

In short, I have had a great deal of experience of actual, genuine poor people. Very few of whom are inclined to be vandals and break things. Instead, they tend to work hard to try to build, not break. To improve their lot in life. And are very grateful (particularly refugees!) that they are in a country where everyone has an opportunity to do just that.
