Trial postponed until April for man charged with criminally harassing CDN-NDG mayor

An NDG man has had his trial postponed until next April when he'll face both existing and new charges in connection with the criminal harassment of the mayor of the borough of Côte-des-Neiges-N.D.G.

The trial of Robert Michael Edgar, better known as Robin Edgar, was supposed to begin today.

But crown prosecutor Hugo Rousse said Edgar, 58,  was made aware last Thursday of a summons to appear on new charges related to a Montreal city council meeting in March and last month.

Edgar was originally charged with criminal harassment of mayor Sue Montgomery between October 17 and December 12, 2017.

He was present in court this morning for the brief hearing.

Rousse said he hasn't received all the evidence from police yet so Edgar will appear in court later this week on the new charges, likley harassment and breach of conditions.
