Peacekeepers issue fines for non-compliance


Forwarded on behalf of the Mohawk Peacekeepers

On the weekend of April 3rd, while enforcing the COVID-19 Task Force directives, Peacekeepers issued 12 tickets/citations to non-locals attempting to purchase cigarettes on the territory. Each ticket carries a fine of $1000 plus court costs.

On April 5th, 2020, at approximately 15:40, Peacekeepers intercepted a non-local male in front of the Kahnawake Fire Brigade. After questioning, it was determined that the male, a Lachine resident, was attempting to purchase cigarettes. The male advised officers that he was not aware of the measures in place as he had recently returned from Ontario. The male was placed under arrest for contravention of section 31 of the Emergency Preparedness Law and released on scene.

Peacekeepers will continue to enforce the measures in place, and encourage the public to comply, for the safety and security of all community members.
