"The next few days will be critical," said Legault.

The premier reminded the province that private gatherings are still not allowed. Legault said he would enlist the "Minister of Public Security to make sure our police officers are very present during Easter weekend."

"The problems are not the rules in place, but the people who don't follow them."
