OTTAWA — Ever wonder what a prime minister eats?
GO Transit riders in and around Toronto may wish they didn’t know after pranksters recently hacked into the commuter trains’ digital sign system and offered their thoughts on the subject. “Stephen Harper Eats Babies,” five different signs stated between Thursday and Monday, at which point the sign system was finally shut down and password protected.
According to GO spokesman Edmund Shea, the regional transit body in no way endorses the messages that interrupted paid LED ads. “It’s electronic graffiti, electronic vandalism,” he said. “We’re sorry if anyone’s offended by this, including the prime minister.”
