Hundreds gather in Winnipeg for anti-COVID-19 restrictions rally

Hundreds of Manitobans gathered around The Forks on Sunday, rallying against COVID-19 restrictions.

Most protesters could be seen without masks and not social distancing while dozens of signs were posted in the ground surrounding a podium for speakers.

Current public health orders require anyone entering Manitoba to quarantine for 14 days and strongly advises travelers to get a COVID-19 test on the first and tenth day of their quarantine.

Global News reached out to both the Winnipeg Police Service and Manitoba Justice again Monday morning, and this is what they had to say:

“WPS was aware of the rally at the Forks and was monitoring the situation in support of Public Health. Questions concerning the number of tickets issued would have to be directed to the Province," a Winnipeg Police Service spokesperson said.
