UPDATE: He's also banned from travelling. Also turns out the judge literally ran for office under the Liberal Party: https://twitter.com/ezralevant/status/1448377707818012672
The judge is Adam Germain, a failed Liberal Party politician who was given a soft landing by Jean Chretien who appointed him to the bench. Germain was rejected by Albertans; and now in return he rejects Albertans' belief in freedom. It really is an atrocious ruling.
Instead, the judge fined him $42,000, forbade him from travelling till 2023, and ordered him to say the government's political rebuttal to himself anytime he talks about the pandemic.
Pastor Art and his brother was just sentenced. Rebel News' Sheila Gunn Reid was livetweeting but didn't thread it: https://twitter.com/SheilaGunnReid
Rebel was also doing a livestream (currently ongoing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zs4-5lGZuyo
Art Pawlowski sentence: 3 days already served in jail. $3000 for breaching Gates order, $20,000 for Rooke order and service hours (which should be easy enough), and probation.
Dawid Pawlowski gets 10K fine and 3 days served and 1 year probation
AHS gets costs also - I think over $20,000
Chris Scott of the Whistle Stop Cafe, who started the Great Alberta Restaurant Rebellion, was also punished & is subject to the same script (as is Art's brother): https://twitter.com/SheilaGunnReid/status/1448317003089907713
Scott gets 3 days served, 18 months probation, has to pay over $10k in costs and I think $20k in fines 9
Germain is giving the 3 men a specific script that they are obligated to post every time they express a view contrary to AHS on social media or anywhere else - regarding masks, distancing, and vaccines.
no one is going to jail today unless they fail to pay those fines in 36 months
Holy moly. Germain is saying that the men cannot publicly criticize the public health orders unless they provide the other side of the debate - this includes social media posting.
Germain says Pawlowski's "vicious" statement to the court was a "cry for jail" and he will paint himself as a "martyred Christian". Cites Pawlowki's ability to raise.
Germain is upset that Pawlowski went on Fox News and embarrassed the govt and the court system in the land of the First Amendment and Religious Freedom
Germain is saying Pawlowski has no right to refer to health officials as Nazis - Pawlowski is a POLISH IMMIGRANT.
Germain says that Art's previous statement to the court as a taunt. Says he made himself a martyr, parlayed his title of pastor into a speaking tour. Germain is upset that Pawlowkis went to the United States to tell their story. (if you protest here, they put you in jail BTW)
Germain cites an unnamed TV doctor who compared people who don't follow health rules to people who drive drunk- mentions the "people you may kill"
Germain just said the sacrifices of the Rooke order - that outlawed protests - would not offend the charter of rights and freedoms.
Germain says the Pawlowskis "reveled in their arrest" .....after just saying the men were "arrested in a spectacle" like what we may see in a "third world country" when people protest.
Germain: breaches like this "challenge the authority of the court and bring the administration of justice into disrepute" Cites the court's right to "protect its own dignity" "All 3 breaches are in this more serious category."
Germain says currently Alberta is in the worst shape ever regarding covid 19. Says Art and Chris are also responsible for the state of covid crisis in Alberta because they caused the public to doubt the severity of the pandemic.
Jessica Simpson (Yaniv), the high profile trans litigant who dragged several female estheticians before the human rights tribunal in BC, is on the webex call for Pastor Art and Chris Scott. I overheard Jessica Simpson has asked for transcripts of this hearing for some reason.
court is done.
Yes it is.
One last bizarre thing:
After the hearing, Pawlowski's lawyer noted to Justice Germain that he didn't refer to one the relevant cases that she presented in her written submissions
Germain replied that nobody's perfect, and that he's human
Did he even read her submissions?!
