Penalties and Fines
On March 25, 2020, Premier Jason Kenney announced compliance measures under the Public Health Act. Effective immediately, Alberta has implemented legislation to require Albertans to comply with all public health measures. Penalties and fines of $1,000 per violation can be enforced by peace officers and police. It is expected that this power will be extended to municipal officers as well.
This is extreme. It highlights the need for all Métis Albertans to act responsibly and ensure that we are following all public health measures.
