The court proceedings in the Justice for our Stolen Children case against the province and the Regina Police Service were adjourned late in the day on Thursday after six hours deliberation.
The judge is reserving her decision until further notice, but did give the defence a full week to submit more court documents for their benefit.
Lawyer Dan LeBlanc said these additional documents pertain to the arrests made at the camp in June.
“There’s some suggestion that those were done under the authority of the trespass act, so it’s just documents related to those.”
Lawyer Meara Conway said if Regina Police leaned on the trespass act to make the arrests, they could challenge the act itself.
“Up until this affidavit came into being, we had understood the police arrested on a different ground, and so it just expands the range of issues we need to address.”
Richelle Dubois from the camp said it is a vitally important place for healing, and it is crucial for it to stay.
“For the stories of situations like my son, Haven Dubois’ case, the other cases out there, families trying to seek justice for their children, whether they were murdered, missing or taken (by) the system.”
Due to a by-election happening within Regina, no one from the province was able to comment on the matter.
