A man accused in the death of a child in Bracebridge is facing trial tomorrow.

38-year-old David Sillars is charged with impaired operation of a vessel causing death. The charges stem from April 2017, after eight-year-old Thomas Rancourt was killed when he fell out of a canoe and went over the falls on the Muskoka River. Sillars trial was meant to start on Monday but has been pushed ahead by two days.

The trial is being held in Oshawa.
