A resolution to the case of the 50-year-old Chatham man charged for allegedly threatening to blow up Canada’s parliament buildings could be reached next month.

David Osterbrook’s case has been adjourned to June 15.

He’s charged with making a hoax related to a terrorist activity and uttering a threat to destroy personal property.

Osterbrook appeared in a Chatham courtroom on Wednesday where his lawyer asked for the case to be pushed on account of new information needing to be discussed. The Crown agreed.

Osterbrook is free from police custody after being arrested in April of last year.

Police allege Osterbrook called the Library of Parliament on April 10, 2015 threatening a “revolution” and was “ready for police to come.” He was arrested by Chatham-Kent police that day.

After being released on bail, Osterbrook was taken to Brentwood Recovery Home in Windsor.
