Quebec Bans Interprovincial Travel

quebec bans traveling


Gatineau police set up roadblocks on the Quebec side of the Alexandra Bridge on April 1, 2020, with the intention to stop non-essential travel into the province.

Essential trips only include travel for essential work, medical appointments or for humanitarian reasons.


Gatineau Mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin  said it's "hard to say" whether the measures go too far, considering the spread of COVID-19 elsewhere in the world. "Now is the good time to be disciplined," he said. "Now is the good time to take strict measures."

Fines between $1,000 to $6,000 may be imposed on people who refuse to cooperate, Gatineau police said.
