The more evening passed, the more protesters arrived at Place Jacques-Cartier near its restaurants.

“At six in the morning, there are people who pray quietly; at seven there are people. At 8 in the morning, at Place Jacques-Cartier, it feels like a December 31st without a pandemic where there are so many people; and at 8:15 in the morning it started, Eric Luxenberg said.

On Monday on Denis Levesque, the owner said on LCN that he has nothing against the demonstration, but it should take place in peace without attacking the dealers.

“Should they pull out garbage bins and throw them in the windows?” What did we do for the youth? We will be the first to give them work, we will be the first to give them pleasure, and we will be the first to take care of them, their parents and everyone else. What did we do to deserve this? Below it is Eric Luxenberg.

Restaurant owners are in the businesses worst affected since the start of the pandemic, and they have had to close twice.

“Our restaurants are closed, we lose money every month and not knowing how many months this will last because we are not talking about anything. Then there are a few fools who come and break everything.” He said angrily.

Mr. Luksenberg asked at the show Denis Levesque Get better protection from the authorities, especially for those who respect regulations like him.

“The government is asking us to do things, but at some point, be it the city or the government, they have to ensure our safety.”

Still, according to owner Chez Érik et du Homard fou, the epidemic will end more restaurants than one thinks, especially if they have to pay for repairs due to breakdowns.

“I’m paying $ 100,000 in business taxes, it’s closed and so far, they didn’t tell me whether I should pay it or not, but I will have to pay it. Do we have a right to our safety in Montreal or are we really Banana City?”
