While Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s was trying to set up a police state in his Canadian province, the Premier of British Columbia, John Horgan, was humming ‘anything you can do, I can do better.’
The BC premier has decided he needs to destroy the province’s tourist industry by telling people that they are no longer allowed to leave their health zone.
Anyone caught outside their zone will be fined.
Of course, the police will be randomly pulling people over to make sure they have not fled their zone.
Victoria Buzz provides the details:
During Monday’s live conference, Premier John Horgan announced those who are caught travelling outside of their health region for the next 5 weeks will be fined.
BC will eliminate travel bookings from outside the health area. “Do not try to book outside your area.” This will include travel from inside and outside BC.
Horgan said Minister Mike Farnworth will issue the orders Friday under B.C.’s Emergency Program Act.
“This will be conducted through random audits, not unlike roadside stops for a counterattack during the Christmas season. They will be susceptible to all travellers, not just a few travellers… there will be a fine if you are travelling outside of your area without a legitimate reason,” Horgan said.
People will be subject to random inspections and fines if they do not follow these rules, Horgan said. The amount of the fine has not been determined as of yet.
Here is a breakdown of BC’s health zones.
Of course, this will basically prevent Canadians from outside the province visiting BC, and Premier Horgan’s brown shirts are already targeting anyone with an out-of-province license plate. READ: UBC student gets ‘go home’ note and keyed car over Ontario plates
Meanwhile, the BC government is still allowing people to fly into the province from other countries including COVID hot zones such as India and Communist China.
