Man arrested for making threats against National Assembly

A Montreal man was arrested tonight for making threats against the National Assembly.

Quebec Provincial Police say 58 year old Daniel Seniw made the threats on-line.

Montreal police helped in the arrest.

Police are reminding the public that threats, no matter their intention or where they're made, are a criminal act and are taken very seriously.

    How about a threat to a homeless man who is freezing in the cold.
    Investigate the threat I can understand. Now if they see cause to arrest...Then do so.

    I wonder, should we arrest people with pipe bombs in their bags.:)

    I read the comment he made and the face they call it a threat is concerning. and there was NO threat made at all. He was suggesting something that could happen if people get angry. If I say "I see more terrorist attacks coming in Iraq if the U.S. does not leave" is that a threat? If I say "I see another world war starting soon" is that a threat? It's ridiculous to attribute his comment to a threat.

    What a bloody joke this is.

    Dan is a highly educated, intelligent and accomplished man who volunteers at a local hospital in palliative care ++

    On two occasions (and almost a third) I had police commanders apologize to me for the ignorance of their officers. The police actually do NOT know all of the laws.

    I recall years ago being paid a visit by the police. Some organization complained that I had threatened them! Since when is writing to someone and saying; "Your heads are in the sand!" a threat?

    Does anyone know if the person who threatened to kill the veiled daycare workers was arrested too? I heard nothing about any arrest there but they were quick to act in this case.

    That's ridiculous. Dan Seniw is a decent man. He posts often on different issues on Facebook. . I've read hundreds of his comments and debates on Facebook and there is nothing violent about him.
    Apparently he posted that " the Charter of Values issue would go away if someone (key word) stormed the National Assembly with a gun". It was a tasteless remark but, common,.. he never said he was going to do it, nor did he say that he wished someone would do it.
    It's like saying "if someone blew up the bridge we would get a new one faster".. Does that mean that the person who said it has any plans to blow up a bridge? hardly.
    The media have altered the incident to read: "Man who allegedly threatened the Nation Assembly with AK-47..."
    Are you kidding me? Now I admit, I don't know Dan personally, but I do know him on Facebook and I'm pretty sure he would commit a violent act about as possibly as he would lay an egg.
