New fine for hosts of illegal parties

"This is frustrating for all Ontarians — when you have these people that just recklessly ignore the regulations and guidelines," Ford expressed on Thursday.

"I sit back and wonder, 'These people must be a few fries short of a Happy Meal,'" he continued.

Gathering limits have also been reduced in Toronto, Peel Region, and Ottawa.

Starting Friday, only 10 people will be allowed to congregate indoors, and 25 people outdoors.
