“Somewhere, that’s none of my business. If people are not responsible enough themselves, that’s their problem, ”said a man met by TVA Nouvelles.

Thursday, the mayoress of Montreal, Valérie Plante, encouraged Montrealers to contact the police to denounce people who do not respect sanitary rules.

However, several people met in the street do not seem to want to play the police.

“If I see something that is big and I see that there are young people in there who can give the virus to people like me, I will report it. But not someone who receives at their house next door, do you think I’ll take care of that myself? ”Admitted another man in a parking lot.

“It just doesn’t happen in that period. Each for himself and it will happen what will happen because with the cases that are there now, they should have closed things long before, ”also argued a woman.

Alcohol reserves, not parties

The Minister of Health, Christian Dubé, also expressed concern on Friday by the increase in orders from the Société des alcools du Québec.

“Orders at the SAQ are very strong at the moment, well that’s not a good sign,” he said at a press briefing.

The latter fears that Quebeckers will make provisions for gatherings during the Holidays, despite the directives of the Legault government.

The SAQ noted a 4% increase in orders compared to last year, but maintains that the trend is for reservations and not for major holidays.

Several customers met in front of a Longueuil branch confirmed that they were stocking up to avoid having to go to the SAQ frequently during the holidays.
