BREAKING NEWS: Maskless protesters rally in downtown

Group gathered in front of Simcoe North MPP Jill Dunlop's office before marching toward the downtown core, chanting and waving placards

A group of about 60-70 people, many with signs and none wearing masks, gathered in front of Simcoe North MPP Jill Dunlop's office Friday morning at a 'freedom rally.'

After standing outside the office for a while, the group walked down West Street toward the downtown, chanting for freedom and new leadership.

Some youngsters carried signs that said 'my childhood is essential', while others carried hand-made placards saying all businesses are essential.

A man wearing nothing but a blue bathing suit - who has been front and centre at recent weekend protests in Barrie - led the parade of protesters that included kids to senior citizens.

There was no police presence as of noon.

This is a developing story. Check back here for updates.
