Farm equipment, 5G towers and electrical substations were targeted and their circuitry destroyed. Nothing was stolen. The vandals caused power outages, they disrupted communication networks and affected the livelihoods of residents living in the town of Halifax.

The group became known locally as The Wire Cutters and their motives remain a mystery.
