After being released on bail, the Adamson BBQ owner was filmed at an anti-lockdown protest in Toronto telling businesses to open.

680 NEWS reported that the protest was originally supposed to be held in the Kitchener-Waterloo area but was moved to Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square.

Adam Skelly, the owner of Adamson Barbecue, was apparently spotted at the rally and someone filmed him speaking with them and posted the video on Twitter.

In the video, Skelly said that authorities are trying to throw the book at him.

He also claimed that if every business owner were to open for one day in protest they'll just be fined and won't be arrested or put in jail

"Go ahead and do it, open up. Let's see how it goes," he said.

Skelly was arrested and later released on bail after days of ignoring COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.

Following demonstrations at his restaurant on November 26, protesters made their way to Ontario Premier Doug Ford's home.

The next day Ford addressed those people and said, "you wanna come at me? Come at me!"
