Monday in court, Judge Brent Klause set a preliminary hearing date for December 19th. That hearing will determine if there is enough evidence to move forward with a trial.

Labatt was an active volunteer with a number of youth groups within the Roman Catholic church, the Ukrainian catholic church and Scouts Canada, he also attended various youth camps, retreats, and other events with these organizations in the province over the past five years.

Over the sluggish court proceedings it’s also been revealed he is facing charges out of Regina as well.

    Note first that Labatt has entered not guilty pleas to the Humboldt charges, and then note that a preliminary hearing on those charges has been set for 19 December 2016.

    Unless something has radically changed since one month ago when I spoke to a clerk at the Yorkton courthouse, that means that Labatt is going to trial on charges in Kamsack (YORKTON courthouse) 22 November 2016, and then on to a preliminary hearing in HUMBOLDT 19 December. Further to that, he has a court-date scheduled on the REGINA charges this coming Monday (23 August 2016) at 09:3o am.

    Please keep the complainants in your prayers.
