Of course, for defying the state, determined to sell smoked meat, the man was labelled a threat to public health and safety. They literally sent in an army to deal with this threat. In pure gestapo fashion, 100 police officers, along with mounted police, were called to subdue this grave threat to society. The man has been fined, charged, arrested and imprisoned. All because he dared to oppose the state. All because he dared to sell smoked meat under a small brand, not endorsed or supported by the government.
Meanwhile, a local Toronto Barber Shop is granted a permit as an “essential business”, because they sell oranges.
