In the criminal code, the charge is described as “every one who counsels another person to commit an indictable offence is, if the offence is not committed, guilty of an indictable offence and liable to the same punishment to which a person who attempts to commit that offence is liable.”

Police say this is an isolated incident and that there is no threat to public safety.
