Protesters rally outside Chick-fil-A's 1st Toronto location on its opening day. Opinions?

A controversial U. S. fast-food chain has opened in downtown Toronto to a long line of customers, but also to a group of outraged protesters.

Chick-fil-A is known for both its fried chicken sandwiches and its ownership's religious beliefs

The U. S. fast-food chain's president Dan Cathy, whose family owns the company, has been an outspoken opponent of same-sex marriage and has supported anti-LGBTQ groups.

"We won't allow hateful rhetoric to be here," said Justin Khan, who works at The 519, an LGBTQ community centre in an area of Toronto known as the gay village, just a few blocks from the restaurant.

"The fact that Chick-fil-A is opening on the streets of Toronto is something that is quite alarming."

Khan went on to accuse the corporation of promoting "hate and discrimination" against the LGBTQ community.

But franchise owner Wilson Yang said in a statement: "We respect people's right to share their opinions and want all Torontonians to know they are welcome at Chick-fil-A."
