Crazy, cash strapped Ontario looking for some easy cash. As a civil libertarian I'm quite torn by this, especially because I know the dishonest tactics of TPS/OPP/RCMP.

We just had a woman arrested today for not practicing self quarantine. She's in the clink tonight.

People and businesses found breaking the new social distancing rules will be fined, Ontario Provincial Police said Friday.

Individuals could be fined up to $1,000 while corporations could face fines of up to $500,000, OPP said in a news release.

City, provincial and federal governments have been implementing measures such as travel restrictions, social distancing protocols and business closures to deal with the COVID-19 crisis.

But while the majority of people and businesses have been observing the social distancing protocols, officials say there are others who continue to ignore them.

"Although voluntary compliance is always preferred, under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA), there are consequences for individuals and businesses that choose to defy the Act while it is in force," OPP said.

Yes it's a treasure that Québec kept its French. A whole 'nother culture, right over the border. One of life's blessings.
