Man dismisses lawyer
One man involved in a serious assault has had a change of counsel but the preliminary inquiry date will stay the same.

Their preliminary inquiry is scheduled for Jan. 22, 2018 in the St. Albert provincial court.
On May 21 a 17-year-old male allegedly went to meet three men and entered their vehicle for a drug deal.
The teen was assaulted, receiving injuries to his side, face and head. He required surgery and a stay at the hospital.
The boy also had his property stolen and was left wandering through the Akinsdale neighbourhood without shoes or socks.
Dukuly, 19; Malcolm Quincy Powery, 24; and Calvin Junior Powery-Hooker, 18; have each been charged with aggravated assault, robbery and forcible confinement. All three men are residents of Edmonton.
Dukuly and Powery-Hooker were denied bail and remain in custody.
