Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada: Video shows officers using physical force to arrest a man inside of Costco for not wearing a mask. The man reportedly had a medical exemption from wearing a mask. The government of Ontario has set partial lockdown policies on the province, including the closure of indoor dining, food courts, gyms and theaters, as well as lower capacity limits in most other settings.

Video out of Canada shows another heavy-handed arrest of a citizen by a group of police officers for not wearing a mask in a Costco.

The video begins with half a dozen officers trying to subdue the customer outside the Etobicoke Costco in Ontario as the person filming tells the police he knows the man.

The customer reportedly had a medical exemption from masks, but that didn’t stop the police from arresting the individual.

This comes as renewed COVID restrictions went into effect in Ontario last week amid rising Omicron cases in the province.

From Toronto CTV News:

The restrictions, a return to Step Two of the province’s reopening plan, include the closure of indoor dining, food courts, gyms and theatres, as well as lower capacity limits in most other settings.

Most personal care services will be allowed to operate at 50 per cent capacity, though some settings such as saunas and steam rooms will have to be closed.

Social gatherings are limited to five people indoors and 10 people outdoors.

Time to Boycott Costco, and any of the retailers who willfully violate human civil
rights-this “Mandemic” was GOVERNMENT funded for the purposes of total
social control of the public sector –and we must TAKE THEM DOWN!

I agree. Where I live, they had the mandate, then they rescinded it. Good for them, or I would not ever go there again. We could control the narrative if we all just voted with our dollars. Shop ONLY where they haven’t gone insane. Yet…
