  • Adamson Barbecue

    Thought there would be a thread on this already. Unless it's attatched to something I missed. Wondering what the consensus is on the owner, (Andrew Skelly). He defied a Provincial law and opened his restaurant to a packed crowd. Today, he was arrested after trying to break into his restaurant vowing to open again.

    Can't say I have any pity for him. I do understand and sympathize with the issue of any small business right now. He sort of reminds me of Paul Magder opening his furrier business defying the Sunday shopping ban back in the 70's, only lives weren't at risk then.

    Personally, I think this guy is an idiot, but I know that there will be support and sympathy for him. If he has no concern with spreading the virus, can't imagine that he's overly concerned with someones steak either.

    Don't feel sorry for him in the least. He is the author of his own issues. I certainly believe he could have continued serving his customers with a take out only option, but I don't think that was his main motivation. He was trying to make some kind of statement and I'm glad that they shut him down and arrested him.

    What I am even potentially more appalled about is the MPP that applauded him, Randy Hillier. Don't understand an MPP applauding someone in defying a provincial order.

      Almost had a shred of sympathy for him at first but did not appreciate his tactics. Later today learning that the restaurant was not a licensed business and was not being inspected by health inspectors like regular places with the “green” sign in the window?

      Lost all sympathy.

          Based on the assumed accuracy of the news items that I’ve read, I have no sympathy for the owner. His arrest appears to have been a necessity.
          This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.

            Plenty of sympathy for small business but none for this guy who has gone out of his way to be antagonistic.

            There's a GoFundMe out there for his legal fees at almost $90K now.

              No one ever went broke underestimating the gullibility of the American(and now Canadian) people.

                Lots of problem here but he is cheating the small business around. Doesn't pay for business licence, insurance, no worry about Health Inspections . . . this way he can sell his food cheaper and scr3w the small business/restaurant around . . . no sympathy at all . . . who knows about GST number, like somebody said, CRA will be looking into this . . .
                If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.

                  So..... what was his goal in all this?

                  Just to bring attention to his restaurant?

                  Seems like a lot of risk (big fines, even jail time) to get some very mixed publicity.

                  I'd never heard of him, now I have and won't ever give him any business.

                  So. Much. Winning for him.....

                      I remember Paul Magder handling his situation with some dignity. Rather than aggressive anger.

                      Anti-maskers/deniers seem to be preternaturally angry.

                      Just the past couple of days.

                      A WalMart employee in BC attacked when asking someone to wear a mask.

                            And no one has mentioned that he was operating his restaurant without a business license,

                              It was mentioned.
