Extraordinary and unprecedented powers were given to the province’s police departments under the new stay-at-home order issued by Premier Doug Ford yesterday.
Along with shutting down a large portion of society, including various recreational activities and outdoor gatherings, the province of Ontario also gave police the power to stop anyone at any time to ask why they are not home and where they live.
Doug Ford cites rising numbers of Covid-19 and ICU units filled to the brim as some of the reasons for these unusual measures.
Apparently, not everyone thought that stopping random motorists was a good idea. More than a few police departments in Ontario said they would not exercise these powers.
