Three-day hearing for case involving former Nanaimo city manager Tracy Samra confirmed

Hearing scheduled to begin March 20 in Nanaimo

Nanaimo’s former chief administrative officer’s court hearing has been confirmed.

A hearing has been scheduled for March 20 at 9:30 a.m. in the B.C. Prosecution Service’s peace bond application case against Tracy Samra, who was arrested in last year for allegedly making threats against numerous individuals.

The hearing will take place in B.C. provincial court in Nanaimo. Additional dates have been scheduled for March 21-22.

The dates were confirmed during a brief court session Tuesday.

The prosecution service wants Samra bound to conditions of a peace bond due to an incident at city hall in late January 2018.

Former Nanaimo Mayor Bill McKay, former city councillor Diane Brennan and current city councillor Sheryl Armstrong as well as other current and former city staffers have reasonable grounds to fear personal harm or injury as a result of the incident, according to RCMP.

Samra’s hearing has been moved repeatedly since it was first scheduled last March. In October, the case was delayed because Samra fired lawyer Robert Mulligan, replacing him with Vancouver-based lawyer Glen Orris.

Samra was fired by city councillors in May.
