Two Toronto police officers and a Toronto bylaw officer showed up at approximately 11:30 a.m. after the City informed Narcity that they were ready to take "appropriate enforcement action" if necessary.

The officers were flanked by reporters and onlookers as they entered the restaurant as "Killing in the Name" by Rage Against The Machine plays inside.

The line was long at opening time as people waited to enter.

Supporters also gathered, some from The Line Canada, who live-streamed the event. 

One protestor addressed the crowd, yelling, "What do you think of your grandkids wearing masks in school? How does that make you feel? Do any of you have any spines? I doubt it. You are all jellyfish!"

Media gathered at the edge of the property, as they were discouraged from entering if not buying food.

The owner of Adamson Barbecue can be heard in the livestream saying that he's “expecting some charges today.”
