โ€œWe are being advised by an extensive legal team from across the province and they are unanimous in their counsel that Chief Zvonko Horvat is entirely incorrect in his interpretation of the law and has ordered his officers to undertake illegal actions to gather evidence, videotape on private property without permission or a warrant, and attempt to disrupt a church service as well as indicating they were willing to detain a clergyman on his way to conduct a spiritual service (a criminal violation of Section 176 of the Criminal Code). He appears to be encouraging police misconduct. All other officers of the Aylmer Police Service have been professional and courteous and we extend our best wishes and prayers to them. There were no violations during two prior drive-in services as verified by numerous officers that attended.โ€
