Protesters supporting the LGBTQ2 community outside new Chick-fil-A restaurant opening this morning

Protesters are amassing outside the new Chick-fil-A restaurant in Yorkville this morning as the chain officially opens in Canada.

The U.S.-based fast-food restaurant, which has faced heavy criticism due to anti-LGBTQ stances taken by the company’s CEO Dan Cathy, is opening its first Toronto location on Yonge Street, just south of Bloor Street.

As Torontonians lined up outside the doors of the restaurant early Friday morning to be the first to get a taste of the chicken chain’s menu, dozens of protesters flocked to the area to express anger over Chick-fil-A’s expansion north of the border.
