A bloody good PR move?

Activist may have exaggerated “injuries” for cameras


It certainly didn’t lack drama: yesterday, environmental protester Jeh Custer—one of about 200 who disrupted yesterday’s Question Period, and were consequently banned from Parliament Hill for a year—appeared on CBC television with his face smeared in blood, the result, he said, of being thrown to the ground in a stairwell by security officers. But new raw footage from CBC shows that, before Custer appeared on the show, his face was clean. CBC now says the “onus” is on Custer to explain himself.
