In a judgment released today, Mr. Justice Harvey of the B.C. Supreme Court has found 75 year old author and activist Betty Krawczyk guilty of criminal contempt of court for her actions in standing on a logging road when a court order forbade anyone from doing so. The judge rejected her procedural and Charter of Rights challenges to the injunction/contempt process. Ms. Krawczyk is in her 108th day of custody at the Burnaby Correctional Centre for Women. No date has been set for sentencing and Ms. Krawczyk is considering an appeal.
