On Wednesday, Feb. 6 Gilpin appeared by video in Williams Lake Provincial Court, wearing an issued prisoner’s uniform, while half a dozen community members, as well as several First Nations court workers, sat in the courtroom.

Defence lawyer Alfred Kaiser told the court he was awaiting disclosure of material from Crown on the case, which he had just received and would need time to review it.

“My friend from the Crown and myself have been putting forth a request to the trial co-ordinator for about three weeks for a preliminary inquiry,” Kaiser told B.C. Provincial Court Judge Karen Whonnock, and asked for the matter to be adjourned until Wednesday, Feb. 27.

“By then we should have had a chance to review the material and even arraign a possible date for the preliminary inquiry.”

Whonnock adjourned the matter to Feb. 27 at 11 a.m. for purposes of arraignment, but did say she was worried about delays in the process.

There is presently a publication ban on any evidence given about the case.
