A Chatham man accused of threatening to blow up Parliament remains in custody after a second court appearance.

Appearing in a Chatham courtroom Tuesday afternoon, David Osterbrook's bail was once again denied.

Lawyers are trying secure a spot for him at the Brentwood Recovery Home, before he is granted bail.

The 49-year-old was arrested Friday after a threat was made to blow up the Parliament buildings in Ottawa.

He is accused of phoning the Library of Parliament and saying he wanted to "blow up Parliament" as part of a "revolution" against Parliament Hill.

He remains in custody, facing one count of hoax - terrorist activity and one count of uttering threats.

He will appear in court again Wednesday via video from behind bars.
