A preliminary hearing is when the Crown presents its evidence, the defence can cross-examine witnesses and the court makes its decision on whether there is enough evidence for a trial and to convict the accused.

Appearing via video link from where he has been held in custody since being charged, Foulds entered a plea of not guilty. The judge then imposed a publication ban on all evidence presented in the preliminary hearing.

The trial is scheduled to begin on June 10 at Powell River Law Courts.
