A trial will be held for the four students accused of tossing smoke bombs into the metro system, paralyzing it for several hours in May 2012 during the ongoing student protests.
The four young adults all showed up in court this morning and were ordered to return in July when a case management hearing will be held to determine dates and other technical details of the trial.
The crown indicated the hearing was necessary because of what will be lengthy trial.
Roxanne Bélisle, Vanessa L'Ecuyer, François Vivier-Gagnon and Geneviève Vaillancourt all face charges of michief and conspiracy. An initial charge of inciting fear of terrorism was later dropped.
Smoke bomb attacks shut down the metro system for several hours in May 2012 during the student demonstrations against tuition fee increases.
