"Regulations Amending the Contraventions Regulations": I Stand Corrected!
I thought that “Regulations Amending the Contraventions Regulations (Quarantine Act): SOR/2020-86” from Apr. 14, 2020
is the final word of our dear gov’t regarding the price we have to pay for not obeying their “fatherly” advice when it comes to the utmost nonsense they want us to believe and follow. I stand corrected! In addition to their amendment from 2020, a few more followed in a quick succession, raising the plank to stratospheric heights (“for added protection” and “with your best interest in mind”, no less):
You see the price tags being raised higher and higher. Why don’t they just shoot us instead right there, to serve as a lesson to all others considering non-compliance? Ever heard of “cruel and unusual punishment”? No? Look above for a stellar example thereof. Then read “Canadian Bill of Rights” and what it thinks about it.
By the way, the champion of them all, the pupil of their eye, as it were, is Item 7 on the list, “Failure to comply with an order prohibiting or subjecting to any condition the entry into Canada” under Article 58 of the Quarantine Act
Order prohibiting entry into Canada
58 (1) The Governor in Council may make an order prohibiting or subjecting to any condition the entry into Canada of any class of persons who have been in a foreign country or a specified part of a foreign country if the Governor in Council is of the opinion that
(a) there is an outbreak of a communicable disease in the foreign country;
(b) the introduction or spread of the disease would pose an imminent and severe risk to public health in Canada;
(c) the entry of members of that class of persons into Canada may introduce or contribute to the spread of the communicable disease in Canada; and
(d) no reasonable alternatives to prevent the introduction or spread of the disease are available.
, the price tag — $5,000. This will get you a nice two-carat diamond! What are those mysterious classes of persons? We don’t know. All too bad this fine can’t be applied to Canadian citizens or permanent residents, as they enter Canada “by right”, so says the ArriveCan app
…Travellers who do not have a molecular test are referred to PHAC. Those who enter by right, such as Canadian citizens, permanent residents and persons registered under the Indian Act, are referred to PHAC for further assessment.
