As a form of protest, imagine:

  1. Printing a poster of a politician's face
  2. Placing it on a wall (with permission of the wall's owner) in a generally public space
  3. Handing out tomatoes to be thrown at the poster.

What legal troubles can arise?

EDIT: The jurisdiction is Canada, particularly Ontario. My apologies for not thinking of this detail.
