WINNIPEG - A Winnipeg man suspected of planning terrorist activities is still waiting to find out when his case will go to court.

Aaron Driver, who is 23, is not accused of any crime.

Federal authorities are seeking a peace bond — a court order that would limit his activities for one year on the suspicion he might help or engage in terrorist activities.

A date for the hearing has not been set and Driver is challenging the peace bond application under the Charter of Rights.

Lawyers for Driver and the Crown appeared briefly in court today and are scheduled to return Aug. 17.

For now, Driver remains out on bail and faces several restrictions, including a ban on the use of social media.
