The Crown is sternly opposing Quirts release, and indicated a strong concern surrounding the primary and secondary grounds. Primary grounds are in regards to the likelihood of the accused to return to court, meanwhile the secondary grounds are surrounding the likliehood of the accused to reoffend or become a public safety concern.

Furthermore the Crown points out that Quirt is facing 23 charges, most of which involve cars being broken into, which all allegedly took place between February 23rd, 2018 and May 16th, 2018. The Crown intends to show cause and is indicating detention.
