Defense attorney Karen Selick, of the Canadian Constitution Foundation sends the following note:
The appeal will be heard at the Ontario Court of Justice in Newmarket, at 50 Eagle Street. This is NOT the same location where the trial was held. The security measures at this courthouse require everyone to go through a metal detector as they enter the building. The room is courtroom 100, downstairs.

The date is Wednesday, April 13. The starting time is 9:30 a.m. It will probably take all day.
