A former Nelson man accused of harassing MLA Michelle Mungall returns to court next week as lawyers continue to argue over technicalities in the case.

The Crown applied for a peace bond against Donovan Carter, who has since moved to Victoria. Mungall complained to Nelson police after a series of incidents over the fall and winter which she says made her fear for her safety. Among them was a protest rally she attended where Carter held up a sign directed at her.

However, Carter’s lawyer, former MLA Blair Suffredine, argued there was a problem with the way the information was sworn. The Crown has since filed an amended information, but Suffredine doesn’t think the original process should be allowed to carry forward. They’ll hash it out before a judge on Tuesday.

Carter is under conditions to stay away from Mungall.
