Will the accused have to have another bail hearing if I’m removed as surety?


Yes. However, in some cases, this might not be necessary as the Crown may agree to substitute someone else without a full bail hearing. The judge or justice of the peace must agree with this substitution though. When this substituting happens, it is usually because the court accepts that the accused did not break his or her bail conditions.
