Province announces enforcement blitz at big box stores in some areas

CKTB - NEWS - Big box COVID-19

The Ontario government is preparing for an enforcement blitz at big box stores, but Niagara is not included in the initial push.

Officials say police officers, ministry inspectors, and by-law officers will be going to stores in Toronto, Hamilton, Peel, York, and Durham this weekend to ensure all COVID-19 protocols are being followed.

The inspectors will have the ability to ticket supervisors, employees, and even customers who are not following the requirements.

Businesses and corporations can face up to $10 million in fines for preventing others from following the rules.
