The tires on their trailer, that was parked outside the gallery, were found slashed overnight on Wednesday.

Art gallery curator Paul Crawford said thanks to Penticton resident Andrew Drouin, who helped get the support of OK Tire, the monks were gifted a new set of tires.

“Thanks also to everyone for your concern and support I can’t express enough my gratitude,” said Crawford.
