Before I met “Jessica” Yaniv, the B.C. man whose suits against salon owners have made international news, I was inclined to extend the courtesy of using the gender pronouns he preferred. Normally I don't seek unnecessary confrontation.
But after meeting the Yaniv family in Langley, British Columbia, I was less inclined to oblige.
Since Jessica Yaniv's arrest for a juvenile stunt — brandishing a prohibited weapon on Blaire White's live stream — little has been disclosed to the public. I spoke with both the British Columbia RCMP and the local police department, and both were tight-lipped, citing privacy laws. Until and unless charges are pursued by the Crown, the only way to know what happened is to ask Jessica Yaniv himself. And that's what I tried to do, before being struck in the head by his mother Miriam, then being held hostage in my parking space when I tried to leave.
Jessica Yaniv claims that the prohibited weapons were obtained from a friend. Regardless, depending on other specifics of the obtainment, storage, and usage of the Taser-like weapon he had, Yaniv could face upwards of ten years in prison.
This is only the latest example of Jessica Yaniv abusing the goodwill of the Canadian people, and tarnishing the reputation of transgender people everywhere. It is been such a long story that a The Rebel made an exposé about it. You can check it out here.
