Ford doesn’t take Quebec style curfew off table

When Premier Doug Ford was asked Wednesday about Quebec style curfews coming to the table, he could not take it completely off the table.

“We’re working with our chief medical officer on that exact item,” said Ford. “We’re doing everything we can. We’re throwing everything at it that we can.”

Yesterday in an unprecedented move, Quebec Premiere François Legault announced he is putting the province in a strict lockdown which includes curfews.

The curfew will run from 8 p.m. – 5 a.m. and will be enforced by police. Stores will have to close by 7:30 p.m. The only people allowed out after this time are those who are working.

Fines can range from $1,000 to $6,000.

Ford also said getting the people their vaccines is still the number one thing that is going to help.

Would you support curfews if it was going to help prevent the spread of COVID-19?

  1. We can’t keep the thieves and druggies out of our cars, mailboxes, sheds and homes I have a hard time imagining they will be able to enforce keeping them off the streets between the best criminal activity hours but it’d be nice to think we could at least see them charged with breaking curfew.

  2. 100% not. Curfews will just make everyone go to grocery stores at the same time, and people who want to avoid the rush (like myself by going at 9 or 10) won’t be able to.
