news-update

Officials in Quebec say the first weekend of tough new COVID-19 measures, including a nightly curfew, has seen thousands of dollars worth of fines handed out.
    
Police, however, say that except for a handful of protesters who've been punished for violating the curfew, most people have been obeying it.
    
Fines for violating the monthlong curfew, which runs nightly from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., can go as high as six-thousand dollars.
