Fired Nanaimo CAO’s peace bond hearing won’t be until the new year

Tracy Samra’s three-day hearing scheduled for March 27 in B.C. provincial court in Nanaimo

A new hearing date has been set for the case involving Nanaimo’s former city manager.

A three-day hearing has been scheduled for next year in the B.C. Prosecution Service’s peace bond application case against Tracy Samra, who was arrested in late January for allegedly making threats.

The prosecution service is seeking to have the former city manager bound to conditions of a peace bond due to an incident at city hall on Jan. 31. According to Nanaimo RCMP, former Nanaimo Mayor Bill McKay, former city councillor Diane Brennan and current city councillor Sheryl Armstrong as well as Jan Kemp, Sheila Gurrie, Donna Stennes, Kim Fowler, Brad McRae and Dominic Jones have reasonable grounds to fear personal harm or injury as a result of the incident on Jan. 31.

The three-day hearing will begin on March 27 in B.C. provincial court in Nanaimo. A court session has also been scheduled on Jan. 22 to confirm the March hearing dates, nearly a year after the alleged incident at city hall.

Samra’s first hearing was originally scheduled for March 27 of this year, but has been moved multiple times since. In October, the case was delayed because Samra fired her lawyer, Robert Mulligan. She has since hired Glen Orris, a high-profile lawyer from Vancouver.

Samra was sacked by city councillors in May.
