After causing a ton of outrage and being awarded possibly the province's first enhanced COVID-19 ticket, a B.C. party host now plans to fight his fines.

Mere hours after the province introduced new penalties for unsafe social gatherings, 20-year-old Nate Christian's house party was crashed by Victoria Police; they handed him a ticket for $2,300.

It wasn’t that many people man.

In an interview with CHEK news, Christian said there were "only 15 people" when police arrived, and that they weren't able to physically distance in his one-bedroom suite.

"I am fighting them in court, me and everybody who was at this party are going to testify and say we were a meter and a half apart," Christian continued.

His neighbours reported that Christian had thrown multiple parties over the course of the pandemic; he has since been evicted.
