First day of curfew in Quebec

At least two people were detained at a Montreal protest against the province-wide curfew on Saturday evening. Several tickets were also handed out at the gathering, which began at 7:30 p.m. and soon violated the new curfew, which went into effect at 8 p.m.

In a statement posted to social media, the group responsible for planning the gatherings called for the end of the "state of emergency," writing that they stand “against curfews and abusive measures.”

No social cohesion here

In the wake of several Canadian elected officials being caught travelling over the holidays – despite federal health guidelines stating non-essential travel should be avoided – it turns out the Canadian public has also been travelling.

Another 41 dead in Quebec today, another 126 yesterday country wide. All preventable, but vacationing is more important.
