Six Torontonians Busted For Illegally Gathering In Cottage Country

When Doug Ford told people to stay-at-home in several languages, it seems the message still wasn’t clear enough for some people.

The OPP have charged six Torontonians for an illegal gathering in the Simcoe County area.

The illegal gathering took place during the Victoria Day long weekend.

OPP received a call around 10:30 p.m. regarding people congregating at a residence.

Through questioning, the police determined the residents were not from the area.

All six individuals were fined under the Reopening Ontario Act.

Currently, Ontario is under a provincial stay-at-home order and by-law prohibits indoor gatherings for people that are not within the same household.

Under the stay-at-home order, those who choose not to listen can receive fines starting at $750.

However, it seems these incidents continue to pop up throughout Ontario.

Earlier in May, Bracebridge OPP laid charges on eight Torontonians for illegally gathering in a Muskoka cottage.
