McHale has been arrested five times, and has faced two separate criminal charges, but not one has gone to trial. In one case the Crown dropped what Christie Blatchford called a “bizarre” charge of Counselling Mischief Not Committed shortly after McHale provided sufficient evidence to a judge to have two senior OPP officers involved in his case charged with Obstructing Justice. One of them was Chris Lewis who would later be promoted to Commissioner by the McGuinty government following the departure of Julian Fantino who himself had once been ordered to face a charge of threatening elected officials thanks to McHale’s use of the private prosecution provisions of the Criminal Code.
I was arrested twice with Gary, first on Dec 16/06 for trying to raise a Canadian flag, and again on Dec 03/11 with the Caledonia Eight for daring to walk on a county owned road that runs through the occupation site.
