Be ready for a warning on your smartphone, TV or tablet all across Quebec today as it will remind all Quebecers about the mandatory curfew starting at 8 pm tonight.
Montreal and Quebec Provincial Police will be adding more officers to enforce the curfew. If caught you could face a fine of $1,500 to $6,000 dollars. All police have the authority to stop anyone caught outside past 8 p.m.
“If people are out they will have to show proof to police they have the right to be,” said Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante.
Almost all businesses will be closed as of 7:30 p.m. tonight as to allow employees to head home before curfew starts at 8 p.m. Dogs can be walked as long as you are in one km of your home.
