WINNIPEG — Guido Amsel, the man accused of sending bombs in the mail last summer, will not get an out-of-province judge to review his bail hearing.

Amsel was arrested July 4, 2015 after three letter bombs sent to two lawyers offices and his ex-wife’s work, went off.

Justice Glen Joyal denied that request Thursday.
