The man who's accused of having made a Facebook threat against the National Assembly is out on $2000 bail, and a long list of conditions.
Daniel Seniw will not be spending another night behind bars, but he is facing a charge of uttering threats — a charge which could earn him as much as 10 years in prison, if he's convicted.
He was responding to an article on the Charter, in a closed Facebook group, suggesting the Charter issue would go away if someone stormed the National Assembly with an AK-47 — a reference, police believe, to the storming of the National Assembly on May 8, 1984 by former Canadian army corporal Denis Lortie. Three people died and 13 others were injured in the incident, which targeted then-premier René Lévesque.
His wife Janet was out of town when he was arrested and says she's in complete disbelief.
"This was just one little glitch that he did," she says.
Provincial police say — and have said on many similar occasions — that making those kinds of threats, regardless of intent, is a serious crime.
Janet Seniw appears to understand that lesson now.
"Just be careful, people, of what you write on the Internet. You could end up in the same position."
