There's a lot of people caught breaking the rules. COVID-19 fines in Canada have been given out more than 10,000 times and they all add up to tens of millions of dollars. Almost all of the fines that have been issued across the country have come from just three provinces.\nThe Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) put out a report about the use of fines and law enforcement in Canada to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.\nAccording to the report, 98% of the virus-related fines in the country were issued in three just provinces, Quebec, Ontario and Nova Scotia.\nQuebec has accounted for 77% of fines in the national total with 6,600 being issued.\nThe province is followed by Ontario with 2853 charges or 18%.\nNova Scotia makes up 3% of the national total with 555 charges.\nThe CCLA used publicly available data to estimate that from April 1 to June 15, more than 10,000 tickets were issued or charged laid related to COVID-19.\nThat has led to over $13 million in fines.\nPeople got in touch with the association to share their stories of being stopped and ticketed.\nAccording to the report, many said that they were fined for minor violations like sitting on a park bench for a couple of minutes or being on a soccer field.\nView this post on Instagram So we’re about to lockdown again huh? This is absolute bullshit. #Toronto #trinitybellwoods A post shared by Donté Colley (@donte.colley) on May 23, 2020 at 4:23pm PDT\nCompared to those three provinces, the number of fines given out in other places seems minuscule.\nThere have been 129 in Alberta, 44 in Saskatchewan, 30 in Manitoba and 22 in B.C.\nThe other provinces and territories have less than five people facing fines or charges that are COVID-19 related.\nThe CCLA said that "trying to police our way out of this pandemic is unimaginative, sometimes unconstitutional, andineffective."\nKind of shocked to see this level of crowding and an almost total lack of social distancing at Kits Beach Friday at 7pm. Is this how we carefully and safely open things up #parkboard?
