There are some evidential hurdles… and of course there are Constitutional issues in which we take the position that public gatherings do not include Constitutionally protected gatherings such as freedom of expression, and assembly, and protest. Rocco Galati will be having discussions with Carnegie, Crown Attorney.

July 19, 2021: second appearance
Junior lawyer has spoken to the prosecutor about a possible resolution without extending it to trial.The matter is returnable on August 16th at 9am, and between now and then there will be discussions with the prosecutor.
If they find a resolution I am agreeable to then we can go for that, and if not, then we can go for trial. She wants to be sure I know all of the possible resolutions available and will update me when she hears back from the prosecutor on those options.
I am willing of course to try and set precedent so that we can start to end these unlawful and unnecessary covid restrictions. If you would like to support me, please donate to the Constitutional Rights Centre.
If it looks good to have a mom in jail for trying to provide a vibrant and rich environment for her children to live in, then so be it.
I hope the judge has listened to my speeches.
