–       Possession of a Controlled Substance contrary to the Controlled Drug and Substances Act

–       3 counts of Fail to Comply with Probation Order contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada

BLAIS remains in police custody awaiting a bail hearing slated for today at Provincial Court in Timmins.  The outcome of that hearing has yet to be determined.
