Pastor Artur Pawlowski and his brother Dawid were arrested on Saturday in the middle of the street following attending their church service. The Canadian Nazi, fascist Gestapo, as Pawlowski has referred to them arrived in multiple vehicles to arrest the peaceful men on the highway.

They’ve been charged with organizing “an illegal in-person gathering.” We call it Church.
Take a look.
Rebel News was first to report on the arrest.
Just minutes ago, Pastor Artur Pawlowski was arrested for opening his church in Calgary. Half a dozen police cars swarmed around him and he was taken into custody.
What have we come to when Alberta — once known as the freest province in Canada — now routinely prosecutes and jails Christian pastors? I don’t know of anywhere else in the free world that has that disgraceful distinction.
Wal-Mart and Costco are open across Canada, so are liquor stores and marijuana stores. But a Christian pastor cannot open his doors with a massive police raid.
This is the second Christian pastor jailed in Alberta this year — the first was Pastor James Coates of GraceLife Church outside Edmonton.
He was kept in a maximum security prison for 35 days for refusing to close his church. Eventually police raided the church itself, expropriating it and turning it into a permanent police garrison.
If you think today’s arrest is an outrage — not only to Pastor Artur, and his congregants, but an outrage against our constitutional freedoms — then please help us.
We’re crowdfunding his lawyers.
I just got off the phone with them — they are working on getting Pastor Artur released right now.

Arresting Christians for holding church services is what police states do, not liberal democracies. This has to stop.
On Saturday, Artur and Dawid Pawlowski were charged with organizing an illegal in-person gathering, inciting or inviting others to attend an illegal gathering, as well as promoting and attending the gathering.
Earlier this week, Alberta Health Services obtained a Court of Queen’s Bench Order that applied to gatherings such as protests, demonstrations and rallies.
AHS officials already took action using the order against the Whistle Stop Café in Mirror, Alta., physically closing the restaurant on Wednesday in advance of a planned anti-mask protest. On Saturday, that protest went ahead. Afterward, RCMP officers ticketed those leaving the event and arrested the protest’s organizer.
Calgary police said they proactively served the church organizers with the order to ensure citizens attending service on Saturday were abiding by public health orders.
In a release, police said the Pawlowskis “acknowledged the injunction, but chose to ignore requirements for social distancing, mask wearing and reduced capacity limits for attendees” and went ahead with the event.
Throughout the pandemic, the brothers have held large, maskless gatherings and have denied health officials entry to the church, which is located in the southeast neighbourhood of Dover.
AHS has said previously that attempts by health inspectors to enter the church have been met with abusive language and racial slurs.
On Saturday, video from the scene showed one of the church’s leaders scream at police, comparing the officers to Nazis.
In another livestreamed video, following the Pawlowskis’ arrest, mayoral candidate Kevin J. Johnston said if elected, he is prepared to arm himself and go to the homes of health officials who have taken enforcement actions against the church.
If elected? Come on, man! What are you doing now? Talk is cheap here and what is this “racial slur” business. Everyone that watched Pastor Pawlowski scold these criminals as Nazis, fascists and Gestapo know this has nothing to do with racism. This is what these people are behaving like.
The government is not in charge of health. It has usurped that authority because it will not do its job of enforcing actual law against the corrupt and criminal. Thus, they turn their focus on a man and the ministry of this Church that feed the homeless, take care of the sick and minister to those in need, thus providing competition to government enslavement by entitlements.
