When COVID cops tried to shut a restaurant down for violating social distancing orders, the heroic customers hooted them down and made them run away in shame.
The COVID cops tried to raid Corduroy Restaurant in Vancouver, British Columbia, but the diners there weren’t having any of it.
According to Global News, the government officials met stiff resistance when they arrived and attempted to shut the restaurant down. The officials met with shouts of “GET OUT!”
The COVID cops were buttressed by a three-week ban on indoor dining that was floated by authorities in BC.
But the restaurant’s owner, Rebecca Matthews, didn’t see any reason to obey the governments rules. During the video, Matthews tells the officials that they are trespassing on private property and that she does not recognize their authority.
Then, in short order, the patrons jump in and begin yelling “GET OUT” at the officials.
Matthews insists that she has no intention of bowing to the government’s rules.
Health Minister Adrian Dix said he is “frustrated with the behavior [at the restaurant]. No one misunderstands the rules.”
But Dix added that they are going to shut the restaurant down, nonetheless. “We are enforcing that closure order, and it is being enforced right now, and it will be enforced,” Dix said.
