Saanich, BC – Today the District of Saanich and the Province of BC concluded a five-day court hearing on the applications for injunction against the occupants of Regina Park.
The Honourable Mr. Justice Branch has chosen to reserve his judgement with a decision and reasons to be provided at 9 a.m. on Friday, September 7.
