Kingston Just Had A Huge Street Party & Hundreds Showed Up

Hundreds took to the streets of Kingston on Saturday night for a party that was roughly 12 times the size of outdoor gatherings legally allowed in Ontario right now.

Kingston Police Constable Ash Gutheinz told Narcity that officers were called to Aberdeen Street at around 2:40 a.m. on Sunday, July 5 to break up a large party consisting "predominantly of post-secondary student age, in apparent contravention of public health COVID-19 rules."

"Uniform patrol, whose priority was public safety, responded and was able to disperse the crowd in the early morning hours of July 4," said Gutheinz.

A clip posted by videographer Dominic Christian Ownes shows the crowd jumping and singing in unison, shooting fireworks, and even standing on the roof of a home.

Police said that an investigation into the matter remains ongoing. Footage of the event is being reviewed by authorities "to determine if organizers and participants can be identified and potentially charged under existing COVID-19 legislation and applicable criminal offences."

Starting Wednesday, September 22, Ontarians are expected to show their proof of vaxx to enter certain non-essential businesses and settings. However, because enhanced vaccine certificates with QR codes won't come into effect in the province until October 22, a team of volunteer software engineers and medical professionals created a tool that lets you store your proof of vaccination on your phone with a QR code.

"No personal data is sent to the internet. [The] QR code is for verification only, with no personal info," the team behind the tool told CTV News.
