Anger over the COVID-19 lockdown in Toronto and Peel Region is prompting a protest in downtown Toronto on Thursday morning.
The ‘No More Lockdown’ rally will take place outside Queen’s Park at 10 a.m.
Independent Member for Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston, MPP Randy Hillier says on twitter he will be ‘testing the law’ and leading the rally on the lawn of the Ontario legislature. Hillier is imploring others to join his protest.
The independent MPP also praised Adam Skelly, the owner of Adamson BBQ, for defying provincial lockdown orders and offering dine-in services at his Etobicoke location.
