Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act Charges
On Saturday May 15, 2021, four (4) men were charged under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act. Although fishing is permitted during the current stay-at-home order fishing is to be done locally. You should not be travelling outside your community to fish in another community. As a result four men who appeared to be hiding were all issued a provincial offence notice under the EMCPA. The parties were from North York, Toronto, Woodbridge and Markham, Ontario. Port Hope Police will not be stopping a pedestrian or vehicle solely for the purpose of asking where you are from, but we will lay charges if found in contravention of the stay-at-home-orders. The provincial offence notice carries a fine $880.00 dollars.
