Almost two years ago, I posted about the group Canadians for Justice & Peace in the Middle East (CJPME), and their “activist” Miranda Christina Gallo, who filmed herself defacing Israeli products by affixing stickers to them. I believed this to be a criminal offense, falling under the definition of Mischief, section 430 of the Criminal Code.
430 (1) Every one commits mischief who wilfully
(a) destroys or damages property;
(b) renders property dangerous, useless, inoperative or ineffective;
(c) obstructs, interrupts or interferes with the lawful use, enjoyment or operation of property; or
(d) obstructs, interrupts or interferes with any person in the lawful use, enjoyment or operation of property.
Immediately after I posted this, CJPME removed the YouTube videos, but not before I uploaded them to LiveLeak, where they remain to this day.
Also after I posted this, a reader set up a petition to revoke CJPME’s charitable status, based on the criminality of their actions but also the fact the Canadian parliament has rejecting and condemned the BDS movement.
Clearly, this did not work, because CJPME and Gallo are still around, encouraging people to break the law by defacing store products.
I call on readers in Canada to contact their local MP and bring to their attention this encouraging of people to break the law.
And CJPME: I have a copy of this video to be uploaded elsewhere if you decide to remove the evidence from YouTube again.
