Photos From MTL's Anti-Curfew Protest This Weekend Show How Locals Feel About The New Rule

This Saturday marked one week of a four-week long Quebec curfew, starting at 8 p.m. every night. Like many other decisions made by the government over the last ten months, locals have mixed opinions on the new rule. 

On January 16, protesters took to the streets to voice their opinions against the CAQ's decision going into its second week. Protests continue to be permitted during this time, however, they must not be held during curfew hours, as the SPVM told MTL Blog.

Another one explains what the entire protest was based on: "Together for health and solidarity measures. No curfew."

"I refuse to weaken the most marginalized without public health instructions," one local wrote.

Two other posters read: "Fund health, not the police" and "No neighbourhood for the SPVM."
