Manitoba woman banished for crimes wants to come home to Winnipeg

A chronic criminal who agreed to be banished from Manitoba for five years is now fighting the unusual court order.

WINNIPEG — A chronic criminal who agreed to be banished from Manitoba for five years is now fighting the unusual court order.

Alanna Phizacklea lives in British Columbia after being sentenced in March for a string of Winnipeg offences, including criminal harassment against two individuals.

The Crown had sought a jail term, but agreed to a more lenient conditional sentence as long as she agreed to take a one-way ticket out of town for the duration of her punishment.

Court that heard Phizacklea has mental health issues and a history of stalking people she encounters and becomes fixated on.

She has been living with her mother in B.C. but has indicated she wants to return to Winnipeg.

The Crown opposes the move, saying it would have fought to put her behind bars if not for the relocation condition.
