People are asking questions after the crown withdrew charges against the anti-government activist.
Jeremy Mackenzie, the man that threatened to rape Pierre Poilievre’s wife, is being branded as an “informant” and a “fed” after gun charges he was facing were dropped on Monday.
The charge of careless use of a firearm was withdrawn by the crown, according to a Twitter post by Toronto-based lawyer Caryma Sa’d.
Mackenzie was arrested and charged in early 2022 after police discovered a video of him waving around a firearm while intoxicated in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
In response to the news, Ezra Levant branded Jeremy Mackenzie as a “fed.” The Rebel News publisher did not provide any evidence for his claim. The tweet has been archived here.
Toronto 99 has not been able to independently verify these claims by Ezra Levant. However, it is common for police informants to receive deals in the courtroom in exchange for their cooperation.
It is unclear why the charge was withdrawn. Mackenzie entered into a peace bond which requires him to be of “good behaviour” and not to possess any weapons.
He faces a trial for other charges later in the year.
