One Charged under Reopening Ontario Act

Sault Ste. Marie Police Services

On June 5, 2021 officers attended an illegal gathering held at Bellevue Park to ensure it remained peaceful and to investigate the gathering.

The investigation identified one person as having organized the illegal gathering. One person from Spring Water Township, Ontario was charged under the Reopening Ontario Act for organizing the gathering. A conviction for organizing an illegal gathering will result in a minimum fine of $10,000.

The investigation into the illegal gathering is ongoing.


  1. An Outlaws procession of motorcycles in the downtown core once again today with many of them not wearing helmets. Where are the cops when they should be handing out fines to dozens of these bikers for not wearing helmets, gathering illegally?

  2. with crime ramped in the city i bet at least 1/2 dozen cops there for peacefull protest……..look around people we are still being held prisioner while the rest of the world is awakening and moving on getting ready for the next scandemic.

  3. it’s starting to get expensive for that hippy.

    what are these people going to do when the only source of their personality and identity disappears as the pandemic ends?

  4. And where are the charges against the organizers of a golf tournament this past weekend? I totally think this protest guy is a moron, but you cannot be selectively charging peaceful protesters, while allowing event organizers of an organized sporting event with more than 5 individuals present within 6′ of one another without proper masking to go without an investigation and charges. I bet that will be a great defence for this protest organizer which surely will help him demonstrate selective prosecution and likely get his charges withdrawn given that there is public evidence of the golf tournament occurring (on this site) with photos demonstrating the violation of the reopening act.
