Bernier To Plead Not Guilty

WINNIPEG - A lawyer for Maxime Bernier says the leader of the People's Party of Canada will plead not guilty to breaking COVID-19 rules.

Alex Steigerwald says he's working with the Crown on possible trial dates after Bernier was arrested last June in St. Pierre Jolys.

He's accused of exceeding public gathering limits and failing to self-isolate after entering the province.

Bernier was touring communities in southern Manitoba and holding rallies against COVID restrictions.
