REGINA - A 41-year-old man from Grayson, Saskatchewan has been charged with making threats against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over social media.
On Tuesday, Christopher Hayes was arrested by RCMP members at his residence in Grayson. He was charged with one count of uttering threats against a Canadian government official. His home was also searched, and several electronic items were seized by police.
On March 30, The RCMP National Security Enforcement Section began an investigation after a complaint was received that a man was making threats against the prime minister. On July 13, the RCMP received a second similar complaint.
“We take all complaints of this nature (threats) very seriously, no matter who the victim is or by what means the threat is conveyed, and investigate them to their fullest potential. We can’t speculate on whether or not someone may or may not act on alleged threats made. In this instance we became aware of these alleged threats, conducted an investigation and laid charges against one person,” said Supt. Rob Cameron, “F” Division Assistant Criminal Operations Officer.
The RCMP said there was no direct contact between Hayes and Trudeau, and that the investigation is ongoing. Hayes made his first appearance at Yorkton Provincial Court on Wednesday. His next appearance will be on Aug. 8 at 10 a.m. in Melville Provincial Court.

I have no clue about this Pokémon go fad but can you really hate it that much? And why would someone in Saskabush care about Notley? Oh right, just like some people in Ontario get all frothy over Notley. I wonder if he ever came out and suggested assassination of any of them....?


There are a number of Facebook posts criticizing Trudeau, including one that denounces a government decision to give money to help Iraq rebuild its shattered economy.

The most recent post, made on Monday, is a link to a blog post titled, “Canada is being led by a terrorists supporter.”

In one post from July, Hayes writes, “if I have to folks I’ll start personally threatening civil unrest, personally gathering people to overthrow Notley and eventually Trudeau.

I have nothing to hide from the RCMP who are already watching my Facebook account… am I threatening personal harm to Trudeau or Notley? Nope.”

The post goes on to say Hayes will spend all of his time “to organize a movement to overthrow a corrupt government. If the RCMP as a whole had any balls ya [sic] all show throw Notley and Trudeau in fn [sic] jail for corruption and crimes against the people of Canada.”

Other posts are in support of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, while others go after government and politicians.

There are also posts about Pokemon Go.
