A microphone and speakers were used in an attempt to speak to the crowd which had gathered to honour local veterans.

Jackson appeared at a pre-trial conference May 1. She told the court she plans to call eight witnesses, while the crown intends on having 13 witnesses testify.

The trial has been scheduled for Dec. 4-7 and 14-15. Another pre-trial conference has been set for Oct. 6.

Jackson was supported in court by notable anti-COVID mandate protestor David Lindsay and two other individuals.
