BBQ Revolt! Toronto man criminally charged for opening his restaurant


Police arrested and dragged off a Toronto restaurant owner who organized an anti-lockdown protest by keeping his Toronto barbecue restaurant open. He won’t survive another winter with it shut down so he’s been opening it every day. He has fines and charges, two of them criminal, piling up.
