Man charged af­ter van­dal­ism at mosque

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

A Mon­treal man has pleaded not guilty to a charge of mis­chief in con­nec­tion with van­dal­ism at a lo­cal mosque. Syl­vain Gin­gras, 50, has been or­dered held for 30 days so he can have a psy­chi­atric eval­u­a­tion to de­ter­mine crim­i­nal re­spon­si­bil­ity. A win­dow at the Khadi­jah cen­tre was smashed and the mosque had eggs thrown at it on Feb. 2. That was the same day as a fu­neral in Mon­treal for three of the six vic­tims of the Que­bec City mosque shoot­ing. The charge filed by the Crown is a sum­mary of­fence for mis­chief in con­nec­tion with the bro­ken win­dow and is not a charge of mis­chief against a place of wor­ship, as rec­om­mended by in­ves­ti­ga­tors.
