The owner of Adamson Barbecue, the Etobicoke restaurant that has decided to defy orders and open their doors, says that he should have acted sooner in defying lockdown.
"I've been thinking about doing this for six months, and to be completely honest, I should have done this ages ago," said Adam Skelly, in the parking lot of his restaurant which saw lines out the door.
"I didn't realize the amount of support that would show up," said Skelly. "I knew it was time to stand up and do something and do what's right."
"I told myself a lot of times, one more step, one more step towards hurting small business and I'm gonna do it. And I acted out of cowardice, and I didn't," Skelly continued, noting that the catalyst for the opening was the new lockdown and new restrictions that hit the Toronto and Peel regions on Monday.
"We'll be open until they drag me out of here."
Skelly expressed frustration at media outlets who refused to tell "both sides of the story."
"It's completely biased journalism, they don't show both sides of the story. They try to vilify anybody who's not talking the mainstream narrative. I don't want them here, I want people who are going to show both sides of the story... That's why we've got you guys here, that's why we've got The Post Millennial, that's why we've got independent journalists, these are the people I want to talk to. [The mainstream media outlets,] they're going to twist my words, they're going to catch me making a funny face, and make that as their poster and make me out to be an asshole."
