The mask mandate announced by health authorities this morning isn’t the only new change incoming for Quebecers.
Today Quebec's Prime Minister François Legault announced he’s extending the curfew restrictions for another week in Gatineau, Lévis, and Quebec City. In addition, Montreal is returning to a curfew status of 8 PM starting this Sunday. Legault cited the rise in variant cases as his reasoning.
“The level of contagion is very high, and we expect it to accelerate even more. So as a precaution, I’m announcing that the curfew in Montreal and Laval will now be at 8 pm, starting next Sunday. At the moment, we’re keeping the schools open.”
The lockdown measures are a contentious issue. This morning the Alberta government requested to delay the trial against Pastor Coates. Previously they forcibly entered the church and erected a fence around the building, on the grounds that the Pastor was violating lockdown for holding services.
Earlier today the Conservative members of Canadian parliament criticized their Liberal colleagues for failing to show up for an emergency meeting regarding vaccinations.
