A man accused of threatening to stop the provincial election by executing politicians will remain behind bars for at least another week.
66-year-old George Brake of Shoal Brook appeared in Corner Brook provincial court this afternoon via teleconference. He had originally been charged with possessing weapons for a dangerous purpose, uttering threats, dangerous operation of a vehicle, and fleeing from police.
The weapons in question were dozens of knives that were in the cab of his pickup when he was arrested outside the law office of Humber-Gros Morne PC candidate Jim Goudie following a high-speed chase.
In court today, two firearms charges were added following a search of Brake’s home in Shoal Brook.
Brake is due back in court a week from today.
