My letter to the Editor regarding this.

 Have now received a letter from the Chief of Toronto Police - William Blair or who he saddled with the task of responding to it.  Clearly if poor old Mr. Antonio Batista still lived in Toronto he would never have been arrested but being the kind soul that he is, he moved to Mississauga to be closer to his granddaughter.

RE:     Formal request for charges & arrests in regards to a death threat and/or intimidation towards City of Toronto Elected
           officials, City of Toronto staff and suggesting destroying City hall.

Dear Sir:                                         Apr. 28, 2008

    In the Toronto Sun, Apr. 27, 2008, the below cartoon was printed that clearly advocates the terrorist act of blowing up Toronto City hall and specifically making sure that the City “Council chamber is full before detonation” of Toronto Councillors. It also shows wires running to other parts of Toronto City hall for what could only be to promote the idea of blowing up the whole building with explosives - killing all inside.

    A legal precedence was recently set in Peel, in the case of Antonio Batista a 75 year old man who wrote and did a very limited distributed of a satirical poem suggesting that a Mississauga Councillor who thought pot holes were not all bad, should be buried in one. He was found guilty of the offence of uttering a threat to cause death, pursuant to s. 264.1 (l)(a) of the Criminal Code of Canada. As the “actions of the accused crossed the line from permissible political comment to prohibited criminal conduct.” At the very least the charge of Intimidation towards elected officials should be laid.

May 14, 2008           Re: Donato Cartoon

I have been requested by the Chief of Police to respond to your fax letter of April 28, 2008.

I have researched the matter on behalf of the Chief and I am satisfied that the cartoon in questions does not meet the threshold to constitute an offence under the Criminal Code of Canada.

Your truly,

Jerome Wiley, Q.C.,
Office of the Chief of police
