Members of the Street Church Ministries have forced their way to the old city hall demanding to see the mayor.
City officials attempted to block them, but the churchgoers struggled with them.
The city hall trespassers have left forms requesting to see Mayor Naheed Nenshi.
They’ve given the mayor one week to respond.
