If you are not from the area, would they give you a ticket? Are the covid rules enforced?

Looks like they will legally start fining for non essential traveling stating at 12:01am Thursday..now that a state of emergency has been issued..

Wait...a checkpoint...what?? They're doing checkpoints and actually checking where people are from and if they travelled with others from mixed households?? No - really??

Sorry, but I couldn't resist. A week ago I posted my own personal experience about going through an OPP checkpoint and I received dozens of messages from people calling me everything from a liar to an alarmist radical... and now, others are saying there's a checkpoint at Birchgrove?? Wow, can't believe it....are you sure you aren't just lying / making up stories to scare people off and save your honey hole....blah, blah, blah?

Good memory (thread removed). Agree that there would not have been a fine previously but that would/could/should likely change now.

Good memory is right.

The fine, as I previously explained, was for carloads of people outside their health units, all from different households. I was told that I was making stuff up just as a scare tactic, to spread fear, and to keep people away from my honey hole (cuz, you know, all the great fishing at the hiking area in the middle of the bush that I described??)

So long...
