Street Preacher Convicted For Using Sound Amplification System

By Daryl Slade

Saying the citizens of Calgary are entitled to a healthy environment, including noise control in city parks, a Calgary judge has sided with the City of Calgary in a dispute with a street preacher.

Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Robert Hall, in his decision released on Wednesday, quashed not guilty verdicts against Artur Pawlowski who had been acquitted after originally breaking city bylaws by using an amplification system in parks to get his religious messages to drug addicts and the homeless.

“As Mr. Pawlowski has admitted the use of a sound amplification system on April 13, 2007, and April 27, 2007, and as the use of such a sound amplification system violated (a section) of the Parks and Pathways Bylaw, the city’s appeal is allowed in regard to the charges stemming from these instances,” Hall wrote.
