MONTREAL — Alleged separatist rally shooter Richard Henry Bain made anti-separatist rants, references to Jesus Christ and talked about Quebec partition at a court hearing Friday while claiming he was "75% fit" to stand trial for murder.

Bain might have to proceed without his defence lawyer, who requested Friday to be dropped from the case that grows more bizarre with every appearance by the fishing-lodge owner.

Wearing a dark sport coat and white collared shirt with no tie, Bain greeted the packed courtroom by saying "grace and peace on all of you from Christ our Lord and saviour."

At his last court appearance in December, the 62-year-old called himself a "Christian soldier" who was "chosen by God ... to bring peace to the English and French in Quebec."
