Police lockdown church in Ontario after ticketing churchgoers
A Canadian church faces a challenge with the government and the situation has escalated as congregants battle for their right to worship in person, even after authorities locked the sanctuary doors last week.
Trinity Bible Chapel in Waterloo stated on Saturday, that their building is now completely locked up and are unable to use it to even record a sermon.
According to reports, the Attorney General’s office requested that law enforcement lock the church doors on Friday afternoon.
This measure comes after Waterloo police issued tickets to people leaving Trinity following a church service on April 25. Police said in a statement that tickets were given to those attending the worship service due to violation of the Reopening Ontario Act.
