He and some of his congregation were present at the protest while he delivered his powerful speech this afternoon.
Hildebrandt talked about his situation with the police back in April where they were threatening to charge him for holding drive in church services where church-goers had their windows rolled up. They have a radio frequency transmitter setup for services.

“Back in April, we were told in our little town of Aylmer that we will not have a drive in service. I said, ‘who said so?’ They said, ‘if you do, we’ll charge you.’ I said ‘how much?’ They said, ‘880 dollars.’ I said ‘that’s it?'”
“If my faith is not worth dying for, it’s not worth living for,” said Hildebrandt.
“Charge me whatever amount you want — put me in prison if you like. But on our own property to have church service — who are you to tell me no?”
Pastor Hildebrandt has been a key person standing up for Canadian’s religious freedoms as per the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
