    This is not what I understand about the judicial system in Nunavut Territory a man has assaulted someone so badly that the man has to be medevaced to Winnipeg the assaulter gets bail. A man in another is charged with pornography on his computer and he gets no bail. Personally I would be scared to have the assaulter out in the community till his court date.
