American faces $750K fine for breaking quarantine rules by detouring to Banff

DM

A Kentucky man could face a fine of up to $750,000 or six months in jail for allegedly violating a quarantine order in the Alberta Rockies in late June. John Pennington, 40, was initially given a $1,200 ticket on June 25 after staff at a Banff hotel called the RCMP saying they believed the United States citizen was violating the Alberta Public Health Act during the COVID-19 pandemic. American visitors have been able to use a loophole allowing them to travel through Canada on the way to and from Alaska.
