Toronto Had An Anti-Lockdown Protest This Weekend And More Are Coming (VIDEO)

Many huddled closely together without masks as cases rise.

Toronto may have entered lockdown today, but that didn’t stop a large number of people from taking to the streets this past weekend to protest.

Every Saturday, like clockwork, anti-maskers have been taking to the streets in downtown Toronto.

And despite the rise of COVID-19 cases - with Ontario setting a record again just today with 1589 new cases - and the lockdown set for Toronto and Peel region, this time was no different.

The protests are organized by the group The Line, and while their website says that they "are NOT anti mask" and that they "have many followers in our movement that wear a mask”, it definitely did not appear that way.

A fairly sizeable crowd can be seen gathered closely together - with hardly a mask in sight - heading south along Yonge St. from Dundas Square.

Even a number of anti-mask signs can be spotted carried by some of the protesters with messages like "hugs over masks" written on them.

As with previous protests too, and in spite of the fact that the U.S. presidential election is over, Trump supporters were also spotted, sporting either the MAGA hats or a Trump 2020 flag.

And even with temperatures dropping and outdoor gatherings limited to 10 people, these protests are still scheduled to continue.
