Canada: Online form lets Montreal residents alert police to lockdown violations


Montreal police have launched an online system to enable residents to report suspicious activity such as group gatherings after police officers noticed significant crowding in certain areas of the city. Both the Montreal police and the province's Sureté du Québec can hand out an on-the-spot $1,000 ticket for both indoor and outdoor illegal gatherings. Travellers returning to Canada who refuse to comply with self-isolation requirements can be fined up to $200,000 and up to six months in prison.
