#CANADA: Quebec Govt Imposes 10 pm Curfew

[world politics news]

As announced by Quebec Premier François Legault on Dec. 31, a nightly curfew came into effect across the province Friday night, for an undetermined length of time. 

People who are outside between 10 p.m.  and 5 a.m., without a valid reason for breaking the curfew could receive fines ranging from $1,000 to $6,000. Children under 14 years of age could be fined $500.

Dog walking is also not allowed after 10 pm under the new curfew.

Éric Duhaime, leader of the opposition Conservative Party in Quebec, criticized the government in a post on Twitter for failing to provide a scientific study to justify the curfew.

"Return of the curfew? It was a bad idea last year. It's a bad idea this year. There was NO scientific study to justify such a step last year. There are still NONE this year."
