Toronto Police Now Write Hundreds of Coronavirus Rules Violation Tickets Every Week – fr


The number of parties and events still going on in Toronto during the lockdown is “disturbing”, leading to hundreds of people getting hit with a $ 750 bill this week alone, police say.

Police say more than 296 charges were laid between April 30 and May 6 after police stopped gatherings at places like condos, short-term rentals, closed bars and restaurants.

Sixteen criminal charges were also laid during this period, police said.

In one case, police said they attended a loud party in Bloor Street West and Dundas Street and found 14 people inside a house. Officers charged everyone present under the Emergency Management and Emergency Preparedness Act and the Ontario Reopening Act and dispersed them.

“The number of rallies, parties and events held in Toronto remains a concern,” said Personnel Superintendent Randy Carter. “The police are called to attend these scenes on a daily basis. “

The police thank the public for reporting the events, saying “you are helping to keep our city safe”.

Since the implementation of dedicated enforcement teams on April 22, police say more than 570 tickets and charges have been filed across the city.

“Our high enforcement numbers should send a clear message that rallies will not be tolerated,” Carter said. “Our teams will be present again this weekend to respond to calls from those who continue to flout the emergency order. ”
