CALGARY, Alberta (LifeSiteNews) – Christian pastor Derek Reimer was forcefully arrested today by members of the Calgary Police Service (CPS) after appearing to breach his bail conditions by protesting a new law that bans demonstrations against drag queen story time or other LGBTQ events at public facilities.

A video posted online today by Rebel News shows a member of the CPS approach Reimer, of Mission7 street ministry, who appears to be in a parking lot away from a public library, and then tell him he is under arrest for “breaching” a no-go condition.

“You are currently under arrest for breaching your 200m no-go condition,” an officer said to Reimer before he was handcuffed and dragged away to a police cruiser.

Reimer did not resist arrest. However, he refused to walk and was dragged by CPS members to the police car.

People surrounding the chaos could be heard shouting to police, “shame on you,” along with, “Nazis” and “Gestapo.”

Some other voices could be heard saying that the pastor was “abiding by all the bylaws.”

Of note is that the video shows no less than 10 CPS officers on the scene.

With Drag Queens now targeting babies in a quest to normalize their degeneracy, it's time for our lawmakers to ensure children in society are legally protected from this grooming.

SIGN: Drag Shows for children must be outlawed

"Burlesque for Babies" is the latest depraved iteration of the Drag Queen Story Hours that have targeted children across the western world. 

This involves woke parents taking their babies and toddlers to watch grown men, invariably wearing high-heels, make-up and little else, dance inappropriately for attention, gratification, money and grooming.

If you don't believe us, just watch what this pro-LGBT commentator has to say (WARNING - graphic content): 

This is nothing less than grooming - an attempt by perverted men to sexualize children with erotic dancing.

SIGN & SHARE: Lawmakers must end the grooming of children by Drag Queens

How else can we describe half-naked men “twerking” in front of babies, if not by calling it "grooming"?

Aside from the degenerate men wanting to sexually perform for children, the other major culprits are of course the parents who bring their children to see them, tacitly endorsing the bondage outfits and overt perversion to allow these drag queens fulfill their sadomasochistic dreams with children. 

Any adult who wants to be naked, or close to naked, in front of children is an immediate threat to young people, which is why lawmakers must do everything to combat this degeneracy before it's normalized.

Normalization is, of course, the goal of the LGBTQ movement, and that's why we have to push back now.

SIGN: "Burlesque for Babies" and Drag shows for kids must be outlawed

Please SHARE this petition with as many people as possible before we send it to your politicians. 


'Perverted and depraved': Drag queen shows for babies in the UK draws widespread condemnation - LifeSiteNews

On Tuesday, Calgary City councillors in a 10-5 vote approved a new “Safe and Inclusive Access Bylaw” that disallows “specified protests” both inside and outside all city-owned and affiliated public buildings.

This means protests by pastors or concerned parents against radical LGBTQ events at public buildings will be barred within a 100-meter buffer zone around city recreation centres and libraries.

City councillors also approved in a 10-4 vote amending the street harassment bylaw to add the term “intimidation.”

The sudden introduction of the new “buffer” zone bylaw comes after Reimer’s previous protest against a children’s drag queen story time at a public library over a week ago. He was jailed and charged after that incident.

Also in recent weeks, concerned parents have been protesting outside a public swimming pool in Calgary after an incident that saw a 15-year-old Canadian girl horrified after witnessing a naked man, who now lives as a “transgender woman,” in the women’s change room at the pool.

Reimer knew he would be arrested again

Reimer was first released from a Calgary jail last week after he decided to sign bail papers to take care of an urgent medical condition. His next court date was scheduled for March 29.

He was hit with a slew of charges, including those related to so-called “hate speech,” for protesting.

Reimer said his bail conditions prevent him from protesting at any drag events and that he must stay at least 500 meters away from where any drag or LGBTQ events are being held.

“The bail conditions are public knowledge, not to protest, not to be at any drag event, any homosexual event, or contact any homosexual, or being on social media,” Reimer told LifeSiteNews.

Reimer, however, said that his conditions are a “setup for failure.”

Reimer told LifeSiteNews two weeks ago he will remain committed to exposing the “evil” of these events, which he described as playing into the “perversion and the indoctrination” of kids.

“We’ll be resilient. Someone needs to take a stand here. These are strong Christian leaders that I have linked shields with, and we are going to come together as a team,” Reimer said.

Left-leaning Calgary Mayor Jyoti Gondek has pushed forth since being elected in 2021 a radical agenda that has gone after pro-life and pro-family citizens. She put her full support behind the buffer zone bylaw.

In June 2022, Calgary City Council under Gondek amended the city’s bylaws to “specifically prohibit insulting or demeaning behavior, including unwanted sexual advances, or harassing anyone on the basis of age, race, sexual orientation, disability, gender, gender identity or gender expression, among others.”

The story is developing.
