Pastor Coates Demo_2-20-21

Alberta’s churches are restricted to 15% fire code capacity, with masking and social distancing. GraceLife Church has had no reported cases of COVID-19 since the “pandemic” started 12 months ago. Meanwhile, Walmart and Costco in Edmonton’s suburbs are doing a brisk trade . . . Albertans are fed up with the Kenney/Hinshaw COVID dictatorship.

BTW, after a year of shameful silence, some Canadian pastors are finding their courage (i.e, fear of God) and opening their churches to full capacity in solidarity with Pastor Coates and GraceLife. By contrast, the Religious Left expresses its solidarity with pandemic fearmongering and political tyranny.
