An Ontario church is accusing Ford's government of being "evil" after being fined for not closing during the lockdown.
Several members of the Trinity Bible Chapel in Waterloo are facing charges after reportedly exceeding the limits to in-person gatherings in December and January.
Our government is destroying our society to prevent the spread of a virus with a fraction of a fractional death rate. This is evil.

"Nowhere does the Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantee freedom from risk or virus, but it does protect the freedom of conscience, religion, belief, and assembly," the chapel states.
Waterloo Regional Police Service reported that they had previously brought charges against the church for hosting a service on December 27.
The Reopening Ontario Act states that anyone caught hosting an illegal gathering can be fined up to $100,000.
A Toronto church also criticized Ontario's lockdown last month, claiming its restrictions infringed on their religious rights.
The organization called on the Superior Court of Justice to review the province's reopening framework.
