Occupy rules not fair: Preacher

KATIE TURNER METRO CALGARY Published: October 19, 2011 5:35 a.m.

Calgary’s Street Church leader is arguing the city is not applying the law equally by allowing Occupy Calgary demonstrators to camp, but continuously shutting his street preaching down.

Arthur Pawlowski said the city is discriminating against him, but “withdrawing their heavy hand” with others.

“Those people are preaching something else, so they’re OK to do it no problem?” he said.

Occupy Calgary participants were given a designated space by the city on St. Patrick’s Island last week, but a second camp has since formed in Olympic Plaza.


Arthur Pawlowski said he’s been arrested eight times in five years for incidents related to the Street Church.
