For the sixth time in seven years, vandals have caused a significant amount of damage to the nativity scene at Old City Hall.

Earlier this week, the head of a lamb figurine was knocked right off. But the vandals first had to smash through the Plexiglass case to get to it.

Damage is pegged at about $1,000.

The nativity scene is set up by Toronto’s Gethsemane Ministries, who consider it a hate crime.

“It is a deliberate attempt to destroy the spirit of Christmas and I think it shows the intolerance towards Christianity,” said Suresh Dominic, organizer of the nativity scene.

Police are now investigating.
