The SPVQ put an end to a dozen prohibited rallies | Canada

The Quebec City Police Service (SPVQ) intervened to end a dozen rallies, "mostly" in private residences and bringing together less than 10 people each time. He did so "following citizen denunciations". 

The SPVQ put an end to a dozen prohibited rallies in Canada

The interventions occurred on the night of Saturday to Sunday, immediately after the announcement of the Legault government decreeing a ban on "any indoor or outdoor gathering". The police dispersed the people each time.

"The interventions went well overall" and "the police obtained good cooperation from the majority of citizens arrested," said the SPVQ in a press release. "A single intervention required the application of the measures provided for in the decree because the individual arrested demonstrated a total lack of collaboration." According to spokesperson Étienne Doyon, a person was arrested under municipal by-laws for causing disorder and insulting a police officer. She was detained, then released.

Étienne Doyon specifies that it was in all cases of interior gatherings, "mainly" in private residences. Each one involved groups of less than 10 people.

Under a decree adopted by the Council of Ministers, Quebec now prohibits "any indoor or outdoor gathering", regardless of the number of people. We can think of teen parties, dinners with friends, family celebrations and visits to neighbors, for example. Quebec simply advised against meeting until Saturday as a group in residences.

According to the decree, the ban does not apply to a gathering of "the occupants of a private residence, or of what takes its place, and any other person offering them a service or whose support is required".

Another exception: a gathering is not prohibited "if it is required in a workplace that is not subject to a suspension from the government of Quebec, provided that the employees maintain, as far as possible, a distance minimum of two meters between them ".

The ban also does not apply "in a mode of transportation" and "in a public place for the purpose of obtaining a service or good that is not the subject of a government suspension", such as a grocery store. However, we ask "as far as possible, a minimum distance of two meters" between people.

Outdoor gatherings are permitted between the occupants of the same residence, when a person "receives a service or support from another person" or on condition of respecting the minimum distance. Otherwise, it is prohibited.

The police have the power to intervene to disperse people who find themselves in an indoor or outdoor gathering prohibited under the decree. "This is one more tool that the government is giving itself to intervene, and it will be used according to the good judgment of the police," said Jean-François Del Torchio, spokesperson for the Minister of Public Security Geneviève Guilbault.
