Toronto anti-mask protesters seen removing signs at Eaton Centre
They are moving signs, walking in the wrong direction of the posted signs and in one video they confront and harass a store employee who is taking the temperature of shoppers.
"The insanity in this Mall like a driving video game simulator going in the wrong directions with warning signs...This is why we fight this nonsense..The Resistance is here. Do your part and defy," wrote Omari Taylor, who posted the photos and videos.
Omari Taylor is a local DJ and one of the organizer of the anti-mask raves that have been taking place at Cherry Beach this summer.
Taylor has been quoted calling the pandemic a "scam" and according to the comment section of one of his posts he will be going to Yorkdale Mall this upcoming week to continue the "civil-disobedience".
"Everyone needs to do their part, organize a small group and hit the malls and streets with V mask and defy," Taylor wrote in a Facebook comment.
To date, Ontario has had over 43,000 cases and almost 3,000 deaths from COVID-19.
In July, Ontario instated regulations based on scientific recommendation that made masks mandatory indoors to reduce community spread of the virus.
Public health officials continue to advocate that people who are able to wear a mask or face covering should do so while in situations where physical distancing is not possible.
