Michael Gordon Jackson released on bail

Michael Gordon Jackson, accused of abducting his daughter to stop her from being vaccinated against COVID-19, was released on bail.

At the Court of King’s Bench, Jackson was granted bail following a hearing that saw no arguments against his release presented.

Jackson was charged with one count of abduction in contravention of custody or parenting order in January of 2022 after a Canada-wide warrant was issued to find them.

He was found with his daughter in late February of last year in Veron, B.C.

Jackson’s bail comes with the following conditions:

  • Keep the peace and be of good behaviour;
  • Appear before the court when required;
  • Report to a probation officer within 24 hours of his release, and after that, as told to do so;
  • Live at a specified Saskatchewan address and not change that address without permission;
  • Have no contact with his daughter’s mother and not attend her place of work, residence or education;
  • And have no contact with his daughter, or attend her place of work, residence or education, unless expressly permitted by a court order.

Jackson has previously been denied bail and was in custody on remand before this week’s court decision.

His next court appearance is set for last March.
