Before a courtroom that was three-quarters full, Saskatoon Judge Bruce Bauer denied bail for controversial far-right Diagolon leader Jeremy MacKenzie on Friday.
The whole thing took place in the context of an increased police presence near the courthouse. There were five police SUVs visible in the vicinity as well as four law enforcement officials present in the courtroom.
38-year-old Jeremy MacKenzie faces multiple firearm-related charges in an incident in November 2021 near Viscount, Saskatchewan, nearly 75 kilometers southeast of Saskatoon. /p>
