As Ontario slowly begins to reopen, anti-lockdown protestors in Toronto are still out in full force. On Saturday, a crowd of activists returned to Queen’s Park to protest the province’s COVID-19 restrictions and closures. This week, reports suggest there were more protestors than ever before, and their signs took aim at gun control, vaccinations and the government.\nOn Saturday, May 16, demonstrators gathered for the fourth weekend in a row at Toronto’s Queen’s Park.\nThis week, those involved carried signs and banners that addressed new Canadian gun laws, the media and vaccinations. Many of the placards also had messages of a religious nature.\nAccording to reports from The Post Millennial, around 500 people were present at this week’s protest, which would make it the highest anti-lockdown turnout in Toronto so far.\nDespite strong recommendations from the city, most of those present were not wearing face coverings or masks, and were not maintaining the recommended distance of two metres apart.\nSimilar to the previous protests, demonstrators were spotted holding signs that read anti-gun law messages such as “COME AND TAKE IT,” as well as anti-vaccination messages such as, “I HAVE AN IMMUNE SYSTEM.”\nAn anti-government banner simply read, “GOVERNMENT IS NON-ESSENTIAL.”\nMay 16, 2020. 4th week of anti-lockdown protest in Queen's Park, Toronto.#covid19 #covid_19 #coronavirus pic.twitter.com/isjll64Pu5— lucas (@lucvschan) May 16, 2020\nMore of the signs showed today at new #EndTheShutdown protest. #Toronto #lockdown pic.twitter.com/ck2CCcSQ9k— Robin Pueyo (@robinpueyo) May 16, 2020\nFew of the messages claimed here today by protesters 🔴 #Toronto #lockdown pic.twitter.com/MTs55u8dN2— Robin Pueyo (@robinpueyo) May 16, 2020\nMay 16, 2020.

Easily my favourite sign.Like, no shit, Karen. pic.twitter.com/pfmaFkEfHU— Geordi Maxwell (@GeordiMaxwell) May 16, 2020\nThese protests are largely promoted through private Facebook groups run by anti-vaccine activists, which goes a long way to explain why you keep seeing signs warning of “mandatory vaccines” or “forced vaccination”: pic.twitter.com/wvs7d9pUgJ— Luke LeBrun (@_llebrun) May 17, 2020\nVery normal signs at the #EndTheLockdown protest today in Queens Park, #Toronto. Sign references vaccines, Revelations 13:16-17, and a bodily autonomy slogan. #COVIDIOTS pic.twitter.com/JVUOoXoPUZ— YVCE 🧛♂️🧛♀️🧛♂️ (@VestsCanada) May 17, 2020\nAs spotted in previous protests, there were also a number of people present holding the Canadian flag upside down.\nSeveral weeks ago, Ontario Premier Doug Ford blasted those protestors, calling them “a bunch of yahoos,” and describing their actions as “irresponsible, reckless and selfish."\nIn response, one protestor was spotted this week holding a banner that read, “Proud ‘Yahoo’ For Freedom.”\nYour analysis is mostly accurate but for a month there've been weekly protests across the country. END THE LOCKDOWN. Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, Hamilton, Windsor, Kelowna, Vancouver and these are just the ones I know of. pic.twitter.com/IIDphKDGzM— Paul Fromm (@FrommPaul) May 17, 2020\nAn #EndTheLockdown protest in Toronto, Canada. It looks like quite the party. pic.twitter.com/ocyblx1aju— Reopen the Economy Now (@ReopenEconomy) May 16, 2020\nThe protests continue in Toronto, despite the province's making moves to begin to reopen the economy.\nThis week, Premier Doug Ford announced that some smaller stores would be able to start reopening with curbside pickup options, while big companies such as IKEA and Starbucks are also beginning to restart operations.\nGarden centres and golf courses are also gradually reopening, and the province is considering raising the size limits on gatherings from five people to ten people.\n*This article's cover image is for illustrative purposes only.
