Mary Wagner, our dear sister in Christ, was led in handcuffs into courtroom M2 shortly after 10:30 a.m. at the Old City Hall Courthouse in downtown Toronto.
Clad in green, serious, but occasionally smiling at those of us she knew in the courthouse. About seventeen supporters met Mary as she arrived at court. Mary made a statement before the court and then remained silent. Due to an unexpected delay, the trail will resume on March 16th with one final witness to testify. Throughout the day, Mary quietly read from a small copy of the New Testament that had been provided while the Crown, the witnesses and the Judge droned inanely on.
Mary's statement before the court included the following:
"I am prepared to proceed as I am today, I am making my statement in my appeal...it is [referring to the March 10th trial]...more fundamental than this.
Unborn children are not protected in this country. I feel the best way I can respond to these charges is to remain silent and in solidarity with the unborn".
A more detailed report will follow. Court was adjourned shortly after 4:30 p.m. Mary was returned to the holding cells in the basement of the Courthouse to probably be transported back to Vanier at 6:30, hopefully arriving before 8 p.m.
Please continue to pray for Mary. God bless you Mary, we love you!
