Another 522 emergency calls were made to the police related to health infractions.

Montrealers who are used to rushing home before the 8 p.m. curfew will be happy to know that they'll have an extra hour and a half starting on Monday. Quebec's health authorities announced a 9:30 p.m. curfew as of May 3. 

Over the weekend, thousands of Montrealers protested against the curfew and COVID-19 vaccine passports, among other things.
