A man charged for allegedly making "direct threats" aboard a Sunwing flight from Toronto to Panama City was released on bail Saturday morning.



Ali Shahi, a 25-year-old Canadian, was arrested after Flight 772 made an emergency landing at Toronto's Pearson International Airport on Friday morning. It was escorted by two U.S. F-16 military jets.



Shahi was charged with mischief to property, mischief interfering of the lawful enjoyment of property, uttering threats and endangering the safety of an aircraft


He was released on $1,000 bail after appearing at a Brampton court.


Shahi was ordered not to board a plane or enter Pearson International Airport as part of the conditions for his release.

Outside the courthouse his father Sadegh Shahi said that his son will be sent to a hospital for a psychological assessment for at least 72 hours at the request of his family.


"That’s what I want," Sadegh Shahi said. "He's been suffering for 10 years now ... I hope they are going to do something for him."

His father blames the police and the Health system for not doing anything after they've allegedly called police a number of times. Well, now I think they will do something. You have to wonder though, what can police and the health system do if a 25 year old has done nothing wrong (yet) and doesn't want any help? I can imagine it's a frightening thing when you think your child has potential to do serious harm but nothing can be done, until he/she does something like this.

Nothing, they can't do anything. You can't help someone that doesn't want help.

I see it over and over with a neighbour. Adult son who lives with his dad goes off his meds and begins to self-medicate with alcohol. Things reach a pitch and they are fighting all the time, the old man calls 911. The police cart him off on a seventy-two hour hold ( or whatever it is). Three days go by, son grabs a cab from the hospital and the old man pays the cab fare and lets him in again. But I suppose the only other recourse is to shut his door and leave his son out in the cold. Honestly, as a parent, I'm not sure I could do that either.

it's our fault I think.

Not mine. I'm blameless and surprising innocent.

'Ali is not at fault'

"I am sorry for what happened on the flight, but Ali is not at fault," his father Shadegh Shahi said. "I blame the police and health system. We called the police for help more than 23 times in the last two to three years, but unfortunately they did nothing to help us or help my son."

Shahi has “deep depression” that started in his teens after he was bullied for being “chubby,” according to his father and his uncle Matt Misha.

[...] For years, Sadegh says, he and his wife have called police, doctors, and psychologists looking for help but no one has been able to help their son, who suffers from depression, and a gambling problem.

“He has deep depression. He’s in his room with the door locked. And this is the problem. We barely see him,” Sadegh said. “He has no friends, not even with his relatives; he doesn’t want to see anybody.” [...]

Well apparently he has a girlfriend. She was on the flight with him.


They were calling police after he was 21....I don't think they can do anything without cause.

Just a question
has anyone here had a family member or a friend that they tried to get help for a mental illness?
Just wondering is all.
Should see the lineups.

The biggest hurdle is in convincing the family member or friend they need the help - especially when they've dumped the meds because "they're poisoning me". Been there - very recently, as a matter of fact.

Or the wait times.
They are long.

No doubt, it's an absolutely brutal system. Anything in the healthcare system, you feel like rats in a maze.

To me, the Dad is just being a Dad, he's upset, probably has indeed been frustrated for a long time if this is someone who truly has a mental illness. And of course the media is there to feed off of that.

Buddy's been in and out and in and out and ... you know - the revolving door plan. He went in again Wednesday with help from Sudbury Regional Police - the end result of a speech at the Big Nickel's Fiftieth birthday celebration. Good thing. I'm tired of hearing his plans for a funnel train and rants of blue-eyed mongrels and Lady Liberty

Ever dealt with someone with a mental illness?


Yep, lots. - Back in 1971 my room mate got quite "around the bend", for one thing he believed people were avoiding him because he thought he gave off a bad odor and figured he should burn every thing he owned. Anyway it got to the point where I took him into the hospital in Campbell River and admitted him, they sent him to the mainland for some treatment, he was back in a month or so and 8 months later jumped off the 8th floor of a highrise in Vancouver. He was just one.
