Pastor Artur Pawlowski sentenced to 60 days in jail for participating in last year’s Coutts protest against Canadian COVID lockdowns
By Ethan Huff // Sep 21, 2023

His sentence has finally been delivered, and it involves a 60-day jail sentence that he already, in fact, served while being held for sentencing.

We are talking about Calgary pastor Artur Pawlowski, who was found guilty of violating Canada's Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) "pandemic" lockdown measures. The court found Pawlowski guilty of mischief and breaching a release order for his participation in last year's protest in Coutts, Alberta.

The Crown's initial goal was to sentence Pawlowski to anywhere from eight to 10 months in prison, but the defense was able to successfully argue that Pawlowski's 60-day prison sentence is enough.

Since Pawlowski already served 60 days while awaiting his sentence, he was able to simply walk out of the courtroom following its issuance without having to fulfill any additional incarceration.

Pawlowski found "unrepentant" of violating state rules – because he serves a higher power

You may recall that Pawlowski boldly delivered a fiery sermon to the protesters who were blocking the Canada-United States border near Coutts for just over two weeks during the famous trucker convoy protests.

A judge found that Pawlowski was unrepentant over this "sin" against the state – Pawlowski answers to a higher power, after all, and not the state – which led to him being sentenced as punishment.

While he was being sentenced, some 200 supporters of Pawlowski gathered outside the courthouse in Lethbridge, according to local media outlets. They were seen and heard cheering after learning that he would not have to return to jail for any further incarceration time.

Judge Gordon Krinke stated that Pawlowski was not, in fact, involved in the planning of what came to be known as the "Freedom Convoy," and did not play a major role in the blockade despite appearing there to preach.

"Probation would serve no useful purpose as the accused does not believe he did anything wrong," Judge Krinke stated. "He is not remorseful for the harm he has caused."

"Both the Crown and the defence are proposing a period of incarceration and I accept that. A period of incarceration is required in order to achieve the objectives of denunciation and deterrence."

During the trial, prosecutors tried to claim that Pawlowski's impassioned speech to the truckers only fanned the flames of their unrest, convincing them to stay even longer than they otherwise would have.

"This case is not about freedom of religion and it is not about free speech," said prosecutor Steven Johnston. "This case is a straightforward criminal case."

"All protests have to take place within the rule of law. As a person, you don’t get to choose what laws you follow."

Johnston further commented on Pawlowski's clear lack of remorse – and why should he be remorseful? After all, the lockdowns were an unjust violation of human rights, as were the "vaccine" mandates.

Back in March, it was revealed that Premier Danielle Smith had spoken with Pawlowski over the phone, offering to make inquiries on his behalf. Smith also shared with Pawlowski details about the internal government arguments over the direction of his case, as well as explained to him that the charges levied against him are rooted in political bias.

"Mr. Pawlowski accepts responsibility," Pawlowski's lawyer, Sarah Miller, told the court.

"The Crown seeks to have Mr. Pawlowski bend the knee, to jail him until he abandons his beliefs and to keep him in custody for an indeterminate period of time."
