Good evening, I would be happy to assist you.
Your friend can apply for bail review to the higher court and can use the decision from your bail in his bail review.
Dealing with the Crown's position on bail, the Crown does not have to agree with the decision of the judge in your case and can take an adverse position if they choose. Judges do make mistakes, not saying they made one in yours, however they do make them and that's why we have appeals courts. The Crown can still take the same position if they believe it to be valid, regardless of a prior judge's decision. It would be up to the JP or judge hearing the matter.
So ultimately, the Crown can do what they did, however if the judge in your case was correct and this was the only thing causing your friend's detention, then it should be overturned on review.
