Hear what our lawyer, Rocco Galati has to say about the legalities on the restrictions announced on April 15th, by Premier Doug Ford, regarding Police enforcement.
We have received many questions regarding the new restrictions in Ontario.
As we have stated before, the Emergency Management Civil Protection Act and Reopening Ontario Act do not supersede the Charter as stated in 7.0.2 of the EMCPA.
Len Faul wrote this wonderful piece on policing in Ontario. It provides a clear understanding of how criminal laws, legislation, and by-laws are meant to be enforced. Active duty officers must remember their duties and should give this a thorough read. For the public, this will help you better understand your rights when interacting with an officer in Ontario.
