A Calgary preacher is in hot water once again. On Wednesday, April 8, Calgary Police announced that they fined a city preacher for failing to comply with COVID-19 public health orders. The Calgary preacher, Artur Pawlowski, had been warned a week before for holding gatherings that didn't follow current mandates.\nCalgary Police announced that Pawlowski was slapped with a $1200 fine on for holding a public gathering in the city's Olympic Plaza.\nThe gathering is alleged to have had more than 15 people, which is now prohibited under the province's state of emergency. He was fined on Friday, April 3.\nThe Calgary Herald reported that complaints have been made against Pawlowski recently for failing to follow COVID-19 safety precautions.\nPawlowski runs a religious organization called Street Church and this isn't his first encounter with the cops.\nThe Calgary Police Service's Superintendent, Steve Barlow, said on Wednesday's press conference that Pawlowski is a known individual to the police. This is not the first time this month that he got up to public gatherings.\n“He had been warned prior to and a summons was given to him for a gathering he was holding last week,” said Barlow.\nOn March 24, Street Church's official Facebook posted photos of an event in which a large group had gathered to receive food.

Under the order, people are supposed to practice physical distancing and remain at least two meters away from each other.\nBack in 2014, Pawlowski was fined for trying to crash the Calgary Stampede with his group of parishioners, as reported by the Calgary Herald. He broke a city bylaw and was fined $200 as a result.\nNarcity has reached out to Street Church for comment and we will update this story when we receive a response.\nAccording to CBC News, Pawlowski said that he doesn't think his gathering was disobeying any public health order. He accused the police of lying. He also said that he doesn't listen to "propaganda."\nIn another video posted on Street Church's Facebook on March 31, Pawlowski went to a local Walmart to point out that "hundreds of people" had gathered in the store for shopping purposes.\nPawlowski is scheduled to appear in a court hearing on June 12, 2020.\nThe Calgary Police told Narcity in an emailed statement that they are committed to enforcing public health orders issued by the province.\nIn addition to the Calgary Police, both Lethbridge and Edmonton Police have given out fines for breaking health orders.
