St. Ann's update-from david arthur johnston, Dec. 4th, 2007: date for attempted discontinuance
JANUARY 9th and 10th, 2008, has been set aside for the Supreme Court
to hear why the province thinks the Charter Challenge should be
I mentioned in the last update that the beginning of the Challenge was
changed from January 22nd to January 27th. Apparently, I was wrong and
it is scheduled to begin on JANUARY 28TH.
Side note- my trial for the NO LOITERING sign protest in the library courtyard has been adjourned to April 18th, 2008, to wait the results of the Charter Challenge (which, in part, will determine the constitutionality of chattel prohibitions, and the NO LOITERING signs also include NO CHATTELS). I was slightly taken aback when the 'crown' suggested that just because the Charter Challenge is scheduled to be heard over 5 days, the judge can reserve ruling for a bit as well. I guess that can be expected. It might be more realistic to expect the
tent-cities to start setting foundation in late spring, early summer... that is, of course, presuming the province doesn't get its 'discontinuance'- if it does then action will happen much sooner.
love and patience be with us all- beware fretting the impossible
in holding on and letting go,
