There continue to be delays in the court case tied to a boating death in Osoyoos in August of 2011.
Lawyers said this week in a Penticton courtroom that they were having problems setting dates in the Ryan Symington case.
Symington, of Alberta, is facing charges of impaired driving causing death, dangerous driving causing death, failure to stop at an accident causing bodily harm, care or control of vehicle/vessel with over .08 and attempt to pervert/defeat obstruct justice.
The charges, laid this year, are in connection to a boating incident on Aug. 16, 2011 that claimed the life of Marco Corbin, 18.
Corbin, of Mission, was tubing on Osoyoos Lake when he was struck and killed by a motorboat.
Crown Counsel wants to get the case underway because of the number of years since the actual offence and the recollection of witnesses.
But Symington's lawyer indicated by phone in the courtroom, he would prefer next year for a preliminary hearing.
The judge said the information is now in the system and to schedule a hearing that far down the road is not acceptable.
The matter is now set over to Sept. 10, to see if an earlier date can be arranged.
