Peel police charge Mississauga man with hate crime - 2017-07-24
A Mississauga man who has been charged with willful promotion of hatred says he's "not going anywhere," and that he intends to run for mayor of the city.
The charges come after "a lengthy investigation into numerous incidents reported to police, involving Kevin Johnston and concerns information published on various social media sites," Peel police said in a news release Monday.
Johnston, 45, was released on bail after a brief appearance in court Monday. The conditions of his release included an order to have no contact with three people, whose names are under a publication ban. He was also ordered to stay 100 metres away from any mosque or Muslim community centre in Ontario, except for when travelling on the road.
