This week, protestors, patrons, media, and police have gathered at Adamson Barbecue, an Etobicoke restaurant that has defied lockdown orders to host indoor dining.

On Tuesday, a City of Toronto employee was seen supporting the demonstration in a company vehicle.

The City employee can be seen fist-bumping a man named Kevin J. Johnston who, according to the Canadian Anti-Hate Network, is a Calgary mayoral candidate who has been charged with hate speech for Islamophobic comments.

Next, a man with a sign reading "Covidism is communism to slavery!" can be seen reaching into the truck while the City employee gives a thumbs up.

The City of Toronto confirmed to Narcity that the individual is indeed a City employee and that an internal review has been launched.

"The employee in the video was not part of the incident at the restaurant, nor is he a bylaw officer," they said.

It remains unclear whether the employee was on-shift at the time.

Despite police changing the locks on Adamson Barbecue's doors Thursday morning, owner Adam Skelly has vowed to open his doors for lunch once again.
