Coronavirus Canada Updates: Anti-lockdown protesters gather outside while central Alberta restaurant owner in court for serving dine-in customers

About 75 anti-lockdown protesters gathered outside Red Deer Courthouse Wednesday morning.

They held signs that read “save lives end the lockdowns” and “COVID-19 is a trojan horse used to strip us of all our freedoms.”

Central Alberta’s Whistle Stop Cafe owner Christopher Scott was in court Wednesday charged with serving dine-in customers late last month.

Scott took a stand because he feels restaurant owners like himself are being unfairly targeted by health restrictions that allow businesses such as grocery stores and other big chains such as Costco to welcome customers while owners of smaller businesses must turn away patrons who want to sit down for a meal.
