Hearing dates finalized for City of Nanaimo’s case against Discontent City

Hearing will take place July 16-17 at Nanaimo courthouse

Court dates have been finalized for a case involving the City of Nanaimo and the organizers of an unsanctioned tent city in the downtown.

The City of Nanaimo filed a petition to the Supreme Court of British Columbia last month, requesting a statutory injunction to shut down Discontent City and have its occupants removed. The city’s petition named Mercedes Courtoreille, Gina Watson, Mike Pindar, Mystie Wintoneak, Kent Sexton, Dean Kory and “other unknown persons” as the respondents.

B.C. Court Services website’s the case will be heard on July 16 and July 17 at the Nanaimo courthouse.

Last month the city announced a two-day hearing would be set for the week of July 16, but no exact dates were known.

Discontent City was established on May 17 and has become the unofficial home of more than 200 individuals.
