According to la Sûreté du Québec, 75 people were caught inside a house in the Lanaudière region and most were supposedly from the Greater Montreal area.

The 75 people who were found gathering each received a ticket for going against Public Health regulations. 

Along with those fines, "ten tickets were issued for curfew violations to those who had fled outside and approximately 20 tickets were issued for municipal by-law violations such as obstructing police work." 

Police say the average age of the party-goers was between 20 and 30 and the total amount of fines issued was over $135,000.
