If a social media post identifies a youth being dealt with under the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA), that constitutes publication and may be grounds for a charge of breaching the publication ban provisions of the YCJA.”

Police are also reminding the public that the investigation is ongoing and sharing or publishing images has the potential to negatively impact the investigation.
