Alberta: Canadian Police Barricade Church Entrance, Place High Security Fences to Keep Worshippers Out
CBN News ^ | 04/07/2021

Police have placed roadblocks and fencing around GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta in an effort to prevent worshippers from accessing the building.

According to The Post Millennial, law enforcement officers descended upon the property early Wednesday morning.

The exact reason for the blockade is unknown at this time.

GraceLife made headlines earlier this year after the church's pastor, James Coates was jailed for holding in-person worship services amid ongoing pandemic restrictions.

As CBN News has reported, after spending a month behind bars for violating the government's capacity mandates, Coates was released from jail on March 29.

Pastor Coates's wife, Erin shared a message about the raid on Instagram Wednesday morning.

CBN News reached out to GraceLife Church for a comment about the incident but did not hear back at the time of publication.

People who “just follow orders” will reap what they sow.

The weather is nice now, so I would seek permission from one of local farmers to have a service on his land in a field.

Perhaps if there ever is another Nuremberg-like Trial, these Nazis will be held accountable for their actons.

“Alberta: Canadian Police Barricade Church Entrance, Place High Security Fences to Keep Worshippers Out”

Reminds me of the nervous Mountie who jumped off his whistle and blew his horse.

Somehow it does not sound correct?

Perhaps a translation error from the FRENCH???
To maintain the rhyme scheme?

O Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all of us command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

What’s to keep the congregation from taking it down in the dead of night?
Jail time?

Ezra Levant from Rebel News was tipped by a police officer who objected to the raid in advance. They will be on 24/7 guard at the fence.
