Suspect accused of threatening Samson scheduled to stand trial

A man from Colchester Co. charged with criminally harassing, threatening and intimidating a former MLA from this area is expected back in court Wednesday.

Police say officers arrested Douglas Addison Neil, 55, of Bible Hill in Dec. 2016.

They say they charged Neil in relation to offences between May 2016 and Dec. 2016; a number of allegations come from comments made on Facebook regarding Michel Samson, the former MLA for Cape Breton-Richmond who was the provincial energy minister at the time.

Neil pleaded not guilty during an election-and-plea hearing in June; his two-day trial is scheduled to get underway in Halifax Provincial Court.

Neil's release conditions include a no-contact order involving Samson and Samson's former secretary; he's also prohibited from posting on social media.
