On May 16, Pastor Tim Stephens of Calgary was arrested and jailed for exercising his Charter freedoms of association, religion and peaceful assembly in the face of unscientific public health restrictions. The police said the arrest was pursuant to a court injunction from May 6 that applied to all Albertans. But that injunction had been amended on May 13 so that it didn’t apply to all people in the province, making this pastor’s arrest illegal.  Seeking to keep him in jail, Alberta Health Service told the court, falsely, that the May 6 injunction still applied to all Albertans. Pastor Stephens is back home with his family now, but the legal proceedings are far from over. We also discuss the media’s use of “experts” to push various narratives.
