Cement blocks went up at two more CAFE locations, a day after similar blocks went up at the dispensary’s location in CityPlace.
On Thursday, the entrance to the shop on St. Clair Avenue West, near Lansdowne Avenue, was blocked.
Another day another despotic move by @TorontosMayor @cityoftoronto Municipal Standards Officers and @TorontoPolice at CAFE 1381 St. Clair Are. W. today.

It appears the same thing also happened at the location on Bloor Street West near Ossington Avenue.
The CAFE Harbord Street location had cement blocks put in front of it on Wednesday, but heavy machinery was brought in to remove the blocks and the store has since reopened.
I can confirm that the people running one of the “cafe” locations in Toronto actually brought in some machinery and removed the 4-thousand pound cement blocks. They’re back open for business. @CityNews

There is no word if any arrests were made at either locations.
Toronto police and officials have been trying to shut down the four illegal shop locations since April.
