Canadian pastor, brother arrested for allegedly violating local COVID orders

A Canadian pastor and his brother were arrested over the weekend for violating local coronavirus-related restrictions, The Daily Wire reported.

Video footage shows brothers Artur and Dawid Pawlowski being removed from their vehicles while driving home from a church event and forced to lie on a wet roadway as Calgary Police handcuffed them and shoved them into the back of a van.

“You are Nazis!” Artur Pawlowski could be heard yelling at the arresting officers, according to The Daily Wire. “You are Nazis! You Gestapo psychopaths! Gestapo psychopaths you are! Gestapo!”

Pastor arrested

Rebel News’ Ezra Levant described the group of officers as “a heavily-armed SWAT team,” and said Artur Pawlowski was “the second pastor jailed this year.”

Supporters are soliciting donations for the pastor’s legal fees.

The arrest comes on the heels of an incident Thursday in which police showed up at Pawlowski’s church in an unsuccessful attempt to take him into custody, as The Daily Wire noted.

Police urge compliance

Calgary Police (CPS) said in a statement that they’d “obtained a Court of Queen’s Bench Order” on Thursday “that applies to gatherings including protests, demonstrations, and rallies.”

“Earlier this morning, CPS lawfully enforced this order by proactively serving an organizer of a church service with the court order in an effort to ensure that citizens attending the Saturday service were abiding by the current COVID-19 public health orders,” the statement added, according to The Daily Wire.

It went on: “The service organizer acknowledged the injunction, but chose to ignore requirements for social distancing, mask-wearing, and reduced capacity limits for attendees, and continued with the event.”

“As a result,” police said, “Artur Pawlowski and Dawid Pawlowski have both been arrested and charged with organizing an illegal in-person gathering, including requesting, inciting, or inviting others to attend an illegal public gathering, promoting, and attending an illegal public gathering.”

Police concluded that amid “a global pandemic,” it’s important to “comply with public health orders in order to ensure everyone’s safety and wellbeing.”

  1. To me this is outrageous and totally unnecessary!! It is a free country and
    Why don’t the police take care of crime and things that are illegal and leave Christians alone!! This is all kinds of wrong!!!!! God will havethe final judgement and say!!

  2. God have Mercy on their Souls because one day when this COVID CON GAME is and will be EXPOSED they will regret taking Orders from a Coward who bent and kissed the rear of China. Biden is also trying to Bully Americans by Forcing Americans to get a shot that May Kill you anyway. None of these Vaccines have been out long enough to have the Adequate Testing, just roll up shirt sleeve or blouse sleeve and get a shot of Death, and what are the SIDE EFFECTS these VACCINES COULD CAUSE YEARS LATER??? Well No Thanks! It seems lately the Rich&Shameless want a World for themselves and they don’t want us Useless Eaters in the Way, and they are doing the Dirty Deed as we speak.

  4. The Police need to chase and apprehend Protestors who destroy property, harm people, burn buildings, bomb businesses, and cause riots. Of course Politicians do not believe in that work because the protestors are their voters. OMG what a mixed up world. By the way, Politicians with brains should be trying to figure out HOW CHINA CAN REIMBURSE FOR THE DEATHS OF MILLIONS AND THE ILLNESS OF MILLIONS ………………

  5. Absolutely disgusting. They are afraid of the leftists so they leave them alone. Like fruit on the lowest branch. Cowards that enforce these stupid unnecessary laws should go after real criminals. But this is such easy work. Why don’t you just take a nap in your squad car if you’re going to be this stupid.

  6. Now it’s against the law to worship God?
    Only in anti God governments does this happen
    What happened to separation of church and state?
    Covid is gone people
    Vaccinations took care of that flu

  7. Canada doesn’t want people to pray in church or worship God. Something is really wrong with that type of thinking.

  8. Christians in Canada should rise up and fight against this unlawful arrest. The communists don’t want religion because their Cabal master is Satan. They don’t want people to be able to turn to God that would give them hope.
    From what I see Canadians have to come together and fight back harder whether they are Christians or not.
    Remember that now they come for Christians and next time they will come for you and if you don’t do anything now they will eventually take control over you and everything you have.

  9. Just a reminder a genuinely deadly pandemic doesn’t require 24/7 advertising to remind you it exists.
    Real pandemics don’t need marketing campaigns and endless propaganda….. But

    Psychological Operations DO.
