World News – CA – Unapproved anti-lockdown Christmas protest in Toronto


. .

An anti-lockdown Christmas protest took place this afternoon heading north along Yonge Street, affecting city traffic.

A few hundred demonstrators took part – most of them wore no masks or physical distance – many of them with children in tow.

The organizers say that they disagree with the cancellation of the Santa Claus Parade and say that « Christmas is important. « They also disagree with the convention restrictions.

Police and city officials warned people to stay out of the area on their way north.

Our media partner CP24 said the police tweeted a few days ago that this was not a sanctioned event and that no city permits had been issued.

The police warned that commercial vehicles in the procession would receive a ticket. It is unclear how many tickets, if any, were issued.

CP24 even spotted a couple of trucks decked out for the holidays, including Santa Claus on a wagon.

Toronto police tweeted over 1p. m. today that the organizer « had been identified and served a subpoena to appear in court under the Reopening Ontario Act ».

The organizer has not been named as it is not a criminal charge. It is up to a justice of the peace to determine a fine.
