The officer told MTL Blog that tickets for failing to wear any type of facial covering during the demonstration resulted in a $1,000 fine. And after taxes and fees, the fine goes all the way up to $1,546.
Jews were forced to wear the yellow identification badges throughout Nazi-occupied Europe leading to a genocide that killed millions of people, the museum stated.
"This symbol allowed the Nazis to target, persecute, and murder millions of Jews [...] As a result, the yellow star has become a painful symbol of Jewish discrimination and the Holocaust," it continued.
Adrift will be up until October 2021 and it holds a powerful message. "It integrates a poem by Innu author Joséphine Bacon in tribute to the glaciers, whose accelerated melting is threatening numerous species and populations," the museum wrote in a press release.
The piece also shares similar themes with the exhibitions Ecologies: A Song for Our Planet and Riopelle: The Call of Northern Landscapes and Indigenous Cultures, which you can explore inside of the museum.
You can sit on glacier-like stones and scan the QR code found alongside it to listen to the poem Adrift by Bacon in tandem with the street art, making it a multisensory experience.
"Thousands of years ago, a glacier melt permitted the first Indigenous peoples to settle in territories they inhabit to this very day, in synergy with nature. The installation invites city dwellers to set themselves 'adrift' in town and be carried off by a stream as formidable in nature as it is fragile, that reclaims its rightful place at the very heart of a city," explained Collectif Incognito, the group behind the installation.

What happened to your store the night of the anti-curfew protest on April 11?
The front window of Rooney ended up "getting smashed" by rioters around 9 p.m., Danino told MTL Blog.
Such led the store owner to ask: "Do [they] think going around smashing small businesses is going to make the premier of Quebec wake up the next day and say 'oh, they smashed the windows of a couple of stores in Old Montreal, I should probably just forget about this whole lockdown situation?' It's not exactly logical."
"I get it, you're annoyed. But to go around and smash windows of businesses that are already struggling, some barely hanging on, it seems kind of silly," he continued.
Danino confirmed the store will be able to continue to operate and the broken window has been boarded up until it can be fixed.
The owner told us no one was able to fully get inside the store, but could reach their arms in through the window. Danino said some clothes were stolen from a rack as well as everything in the window display.
How does the owner of Rooney, Alex Danino, feel about what happened?
Danino said this incident affects his business in two ways.
"In a positive way, people are being extremely supportive. That's really just such a good feeling, to know that there are people out there who feeling strongly about our business and want to see us come out of this in a good way."
The negative side is that Danino estimates the damages could cost up to $12,000.
"We're just struggling to continue and get through. We're all kind of just trying to get to the other side. This just adds a bit of unnecessary frustration," the owner of Rooney explained.
"It's a bummer to add to a situation that's already a massive bummer. It's not cool to see this kind of thing happen."
Now, Danino just hopes something like this doesn't happen to his store or any other business around him again — since another anti-curfew protest is planned for April 12, in the same place as the last one.
