International Women's Day demonstration planned for Rozon court appearance today

The founder of Just For Laughs is due back in court today where a judge will set the date for a preliminary hearing on charges of sexual assault.

Gilbert Rozon was arrested in early January in a case of rape involving a minor, that is alleged to have occurred in St-Sauveur in 1979.

Rozon has not yet entered a plea.

The Quebec Federation of Women has organized an early morning demonstration at the courthouse to coincide with the Rozon case being held on International Women's Day.

Another demonstration is planned by the Socialist Alternative group this evening.
