A Canadian pastor is facing his final trial after three years of repeated fines, arrests and imprisonment for keeping his church open during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Artur Pawlowski, pastor of the Cave of Adullam congregation in Calgary, said he is accused of causing $400 million worth of damages for officiating a church service during the trucker blockade at the U.S.-Canada border last year.
He was seen in a viral video chasing authorities out while likening them to the Nazi Gestapo. When officials returned a week later with a court order that empowered them “to do anything necessary” to enter his church and arrest him, Pawlowski recorded himself throwing them out again and warned his viewers that Canada increasingly resembles the communist regime his family endured in Poland.
“This is the final culmination of over 40 tickets for the COVID tyranny, the house arrest, the prison, all of that stuff,” Pawlowski told Fox News Digital ahead of his trial, set to begin Thursday, Feb. 2, in Lethbridge, Alberta.
Pawlowski was the first Canadian clergyman ticketed for alleged COVID-19 violations.
“It’s crazy stuff,” he said.
Pawlowski appeared on “The Ingraham Angle,” saying “they’re so terrified of the truth.”

.@AbDanielleSmith Imagine that. The plot thickens.
“We have been working in the background on the political level, trying to talk to the UCP government to call their dogs off because this is pure vendetta,” he [Rev. Pawlowski] told Levant.#ableg #abpoli https://t.co/U7PkUYOncd
