Red Deer RCMP conduct investigation into distasteful vehicle decal

February 28, 2020 12:05 PM

Red Deer RCMP’s General Investigative Section (GIS) have completed their investigation into a vehicle decal which purportedly depicts a well-known climate change activist engaging in a sexual act.

In consultation with police officers whose expertise includes the sexual exploitation of children, Red Deer RCMP determined that the decal does not meet the elements of child pornography. Nor does the decal depict a non-consensual act that would be a direct threat to the person.

Alberta RCMP do not believe it constitutes a criminal offense. As such, Alberta RCMP will not be commenting any further on this investigation.
