- Hundreds rally outside Alberta church closed by health officials
- Alberta health officials shut down GraceLife Church west of Edmonton
Hundreds showed up last Sunday to protest the Parkland County church's closure by Alberta Health Services following repeated violations of public health restrictions.
At one point, a group splintered from the crowd and tore down part of a perimeter fence before it was restored by RCMP officers and others from the crowd.
Enoch Cree Nation, which shares a border with Parkland County, released a statement that said demonstrators had trespassed on its land and vandalized a member's vehicle.
GraceLife Church said in a statement its congregants were not present for the event.
