7 Manitoba churches challenging province’s COVID-19 pandemic powers in court -CBC

Case is one of several across Canada as defiance to public health restrictions grows

May 03, 2021

Seven rural Manitoba churches hope to convince a judge that the province’s lockdown measures are unjustified violations of Charter-protected freedoms of conscience, religion, expression and peaceful assembly — and that the chief medical officer of health failed to consider the “collateral social and health costs” of locking down society.

Since early on in the pandemic, indoor gatherings have been restricted in Manitoba — either banned completely or under capacity limits — and that has impacted on religious gatherings. So far, nearly 1,000 people have died in the province due to COVID-19, and Manitoba brought in tighter restrictions last week due to a rising third wave of cases.
