The Sydney man charged over the alleged stabbing of two police officers at Toronto on Sunday afternoon will remain in custody until his next court appearance.
Oliver Scales-Copeland, 25, did not appear personally at Toronto local court on Tuesday, where the matter was adjourned to December 3.
The prosecution asked for an eight week adjournment for the Department of Public Prosecutions to prepare a brief of evidence, rather than the usual six weeks because there was "a lot of CCTV and a lot of witnesses from the incident".
Magistrate Michael Morahan described the wounding charge as "serious".
He also ordered a psychiatric assessment be performed on Mr Scales-Copeland before the matter is mentioned in court again.
Mr Scales-Copeland was charged with two counts of wound with intent to resist arrest, destroy/damage property, common assault and breach of bail for drug-related offences after the confrontation on Sunday.
