A set of "expanded powers" for a Canadian special prosecutor could mean new charges against polygamists in and around the Warren Jeffs-led settlement of Bountiful.
Previous polygamy charges filed against rival leaders there crashed and burned amid concerns about religious liberty in 2009. Story here.
But then a judge took up the question of whether the law violates religious freedom - and last year decided it should stay.
Could charges be filed again against Winston Blackmore, who broke from Jeffs several years ago, and Jimmy Oler, the FLDS leader ex-ed more than a year ago?
Either way, the case could become the first successful prosecution of polygamy in Canada for 60 years, according to this story.
Ironically, Canadian charges could come as a US court weighs its own challenge to the country's bigamy law, from reality TV polygamists the Brown family.
Call it a North American polygamy role reversal.
