Mission7 pastor Derek Reimer has been taken into custody for violating his bail conditions by rallying against the City of Calgary’s anti-protest bylaw near a library during an all ages drag show.
“You are currently under arrest for breaching your 200 metre no go conditions,” said a Calgary police officer in a Wednesday video.

Two Calgary police officers grab Reimer behind his arms. He goes onto his knees.
A protestor said this is not 200 metres. Another protestor said they have calculated the distance.
“How do you calculate these 200 metres?” said Rebel News journalist Angelica Toy.
The two officers pull Reimer’s arms together while another grabs onto his hands. An officer puts handcuffs on him.
Toy asks what is the distance from the library to the place where they are standing. Two officers grab him by his arms and start to drag him.
Protestors follow the officers as they bring him to their cruiser. They shout what they are doing is shameful.
The officers lean him up against a tire. Another protestor demands they let him go.
A protestor said he is not close to the library. Freedom Central investigate video journalist Selene Galas calls the arrest “injustice.”
“This is all about protecting the children’s innocence,” said Galas.
She asked if the officers have children. She said they should think for themselves and step out of the echo chambers they are in.
Another protestor accuses them of upholding tyranny. He said they are “acting like Nazis.”
“Why aren’t you protecting our children from pedophiles?” he said.
He went on to say Canada is not China. Officers pat Reimer down and remove an item from his hoodie.
An officer opens the cruiser door. They roll him over to make him sit against the tire.
They lift him up and put him in the cruiser. A protestor tells him to stay strong.
An officer turns him to face forward in the vehicle. The video goes around to the other side where another officer moves him in.
The door is shut on him. A protestor said tyranny has taken over Calgary.
“We’re with you Pastor Derek,” said a protestor.
Reimer was taken into custody on March 2 after he disrupted a drag queen story hour at Seton Library.
“You’re under arrest for your respective warrants,” said a Calgary police officer.

Two officers put Reimer’s hands behind his back and walked him towards a police cruiser.
Calgary city council voted 10-5 on Tuesday to pass a bylaw which seeks to put distance between protestors and public facilities.
“If these recommendations are approved, the proposed bylaws will protect all Calgarians, including members of communities that have historically and are currently experiencing exclusion and discrimination in our city,” said City of Calgary General Manager, Community Services Katie Black.
The safe and inclusive access bylaw means people would be banned from engaging in protests related to human rights grounds within 100 metres of an entrance to a community centre or library. The public behaviour bylaw’s maximum penalty has been increased to a $10,000 fine or one year in prison.
Calgary is turning into Hitlers n-a-z-i regime.
Fecking disgusting cops are acting like the Gestapo and the SS from WWII
No wonder everyone starts hating these Mafia thugs.
"I am just following orders." It seems we have heard this before - 1930's, Germany? How'd that work out?
So City Council will allow Richard into the library, but not let a pastor within 200 M! Great job City Council.
Calgary mayor out of control, citizens need to use the Recall Act, Municipal Act can remove mayor, council, school trustees, check it out, comes available April 22/23. Every province should have it and it should apply to Provincial & Federal Governments.
Absolutely agree. Where do I sign?
Since when can a bylaw infraction lead to 1 year in prison? Has Calgary become a Communist state? The more stories I hear from Calgary, the more I think we should just build a wall around it, and let them exterminate themselves. We will let out anyone with a functional brain.
What has happened to Calgary?
You voted a leftist into City Hall.
You sure did.
I learned from Zhihu and people said Baizuo(White left) hold a common feature:"Anyone doesn't agree with my opinion should be sent to Jail",that's it, like China Communist Party "Anyone doesn't agree with my(CCP's) .... should be sent to jail." Almost(99.9999%) all the white left are as same as CCP.
An Antifa terrorist in Winnipeg trying to murder innocent people with his vehicle doesn't spend a night in jail but a pastor peacefully standing up for what is right gets handcuffed and thrown in prison, what a upside down world.
This whole ideology is the NFPLiberal platform.
For shame lefties.
What a tragedy! Gondik, Calgary councillors and CPS are shamesless. Protect the perverts and jail the innocent.
This is sad at every level. Pray for Pastor Reimer.
