BREAKING: Manitoba reverses ban on drive-in church services

Manitoba is loosening the rules on some of its COVID-19 measures, including a ban on attending drive-in church services.

As well, school supplies and seasonal holiday decorations are being reclassified as essential and will soon be available for in-store purchase.

As reported in the National Post,

The current public health order, which bans in-person religious gatherings even in church parking lots, expires Friday night. Starting Saturday, services will be allowed as long as people attend only with members of their household and remain in their vehicles.

The purchase of holiday items comes days after Rebel News' own Keean Bexte filed a story from Manitoba showing a Walmart employee raiding The Grinch Who Stole Christmas memorabilia from his shopping cart.

As well, Rebel News has been following stories of Manitoba religious gatherings such as at the Church of God in Steinbach, which recently attracted police and bylaw officers to its services.

In May of this year, Rebel News had an unofficial victory in our Fight the Fines campaign when the Aylmer Police Service in Ontario dropped charges against Pastor Henry Hildebrandt and his drive-in church services.
