Bail delayed again in Rideau Hall case

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 31 Jul, 2020
  • Bail delayed again in Rideau Hall case

The man accused of ramming through a gate at Rideau Hall while heavily armed is staying in an Ontario jail for another three weeks.

Corey Hurren was arrested July 2 and has not yet had a bail hearing.

He had a brief, virtual appearance in an Ottawa courtroom Friday morning, only to have Aug. 21 set as the date for his next appearance.

Hurren was one of numerous accused passing through the mill. Over a staticky line from the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre, Hurren told a justice of the peace that he understood when his next date would be and the court moved on to the next case.

The Manitoba military reservist and sausage-maker faces 21 weapons charges and one of threatening Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Police say Hurren used a pickup truck to break through a side gate at Rideau Hall early in the morning the day after Canada Day and made his way toward the residence where Trudeau and his family have been living. They say he was armed with multiple guns, one of which had an illegal magazine.

Neither the Trudeaus nor Gov. Gen. Julie Payette were on the grounds at the time.

Police say he was spotted by Rideau Hall workers and was intercepted by the RCMP after a few minutes. They say they were able to talk Hurren down and arrested him peacefully after about 90 minutes.
