This time an aspiring teenage journalist in B.C who witnessed a Mall takedown and decided to photograph it (using a real-film camera), was told to 'delete' the photo by Security guards. He (quite legally) refused to do so, and when local police arrived they assisted Mall security in pushing him to the ground, handcuffing him, cutting off his backpack with a utility knife and searching it. Whoever thought Canada was less likely to become a Police State than their U.S. counterparts will be disillusioned by this story.
