Port Colborne activist will find out today if he faces a piracy charge

Two members of the group were detained Sept. 18 in their attempt to scale the Russian oil platform.
The coast guard seized Greenpeace's ship the next day and towed it with the 30 activists aboard, to Murmansk.
Paul Ruzycki is one of the activists being investigated for piracy.
