I live in the GTA and let me tell you Pacific Mall being targeted is not a good move because all it's going to do is slow piracy by an insignificant amount. The main pirated items being sold in Pacific Mall have generally been movies, those who were going to buy bootleg movies would just download them if the stores are shut down.
On the other hand it will be an extreme inconvenience for those who need mod chips for legitimate reasons. I needed my PS2 modded and it was quite difficult finding anywhere in that mall to get it done because most places had been shut down or were afraid of being shut down. How can they even target mod chip sellers? I thought mod chips were perfectly legal here. It would be absolutely absurd if it is illegal.
Regardless, all this is doing is wasting government money on an issue which is not significant right now considering all the other problems there are. Instead of trying to deal the collapsing economy they're trying to make the rich richer, great.
