- A Quebec woman and her husband were each fined $1,500 after she walked him on a leash at 9 p.m., an hour after the region's COVID-19 curfew, reported CTV News.
- When they were stopped by the police, the woman argued people are allowed to walk dogs on a leash within a kilometer of their homes after 8 p.m., per the rules.
- The curfew was implemented Saturday night after Quebec reported a surge in COVID-19 cases.
When Francois Legault, premier of Quebec in Canada, implemented an 8 p.m. curfew on January 9 to slow the spread of COVID-19 across the region he may not have expected the great lengths people would go to get around the policy.
