Two travellers have been fined a combined $9,000 by Transport Canada after they failed to follow Canada's travel rules.
One of the passengers was fined an eye-watering $6,500 for presenting an altered COVID-19 test before boarding a flight from the Dominican Republic to Toronto back in February 2021.
The passenger also made a "false declaration to the air carrier about their health status," says Transport Canada's statement.
More recently, on April 3, a second individual was slapped with a $2,500 penalty for presenting an altered COVID-19 test when boarding a flight from the United States to Toronto.
