Hundreds defy 8 p.m. curfew to protest COVID-19 measure in Montreal


Several hundred people defied Montreal’s 8 p.m. curfew on Sunday evening to protest the measure that was ordered back into place by the Quebec government amid the rise of COVID-19 cases in the province. Videos shared on social media show people gathered in the streets of the old port, mostly not wearing masks nor distancing. Footage also shows protestors setting things on fire. Montreal police did not get back to Global News at the time of publishing. Premier François Legault announced on Thursday that restrictions are being tightened in Montreal and Laval with the reinstatement of the 8 p.m. curfew as of Sunday. It will be maintained until further notice.
