    Well Fu**** I am going this long weekend camping in the bush.

    If the cops want to come find me they can, if they do that means there is no reason for a Police force as I am 50+ km's from the nearest town and 20 km from the highway and requires a truck to get there.
    If I am luck I probably have 10 years left and I will not spend my last years in my house.

    I would have gone the past weekends but every time something came up.

    Which part of "stay at home" order do people not understand? The law that was broken by the out-of-town anglers was the Emergency Management and Civil Protections Act.

    Emergency orders currently in force under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act have been extended until June 2, 2021.

    i think part of the issue is that if you have travelled out of your area and something happens and you have to go to the hospital, etc. it may contribute to an already overwhelmed system (policing, paramedics, nurses, doctors, etc.). Nothing wrong with hunting/fishing just stay in your own area. I live in an area that has been "invaded" by people travelling from the south where the incidences of the pandemic are higher than where we are. We like your business but not until it's safe. Our small hospitals cannot handle an outbreak. Frustrating!!

    Stay at home......... unless you are out protesting with a few thousand people in Toronto..... Makes no sense.

    Why do politicians not have to follow these rules and that is of all stripes.

    Never argue on social media. Every classroom had a kid that ate paste and that's likely who you're arguing with.

    Whether a law is good or bad depends on perspective. I expect that the people in Port Hope appreciate the police turning away people from outside the region particularly if they come from COVID hot spots.

    Then some guy in a car from the local newspaper tells him they can't fish, police are issuing tickets to people coming from outside of Port Hope ... locals can fish there, but anyone outside can't ... tickets issued for "violating" the stay at home order. They left after that.

    But tell me ... these cops are issuing tickets to only people fishing that come from outside Port Hope, saying it's non essential.
    So, fishing for the residents of Port Hope is essential, but if you're outside of Port Hope, it's not essential??? WTF???
    Does Port Hope not realize that we have a PROVINCIAL fishing license that we all equally pay for, and the river is managed PROVINCIALLY ... not locally???

    PORT HOPE DOES NOT OWN THE GANNY RIVER ... this is pure BS!! It is discrimination ... big time. I hope people bring them to court, heck I'd go class action on this and make sure they are put in their place!
    Talk to Doug Ford.......what part of stay at home order does your friend not understand? Sounds pretty simple to me. The Province does not own my golf club or my gun club but I still cannot use them.

    Maybe they should have a banner between the fishing rods stating Free Palestine or Pro Israel and maybe they would have some wiggle room - LOL

    Although I agree with everything you intend and say. He has no recourse as they got him under the stay at home order. Unlike protesting which is protected Charter 2 activity, and, all charges will be thrown out eventually (but only if you choose trial and fight it), in this case he is toast, and must pay the fine.

    It pains me to write that, but he will not win.
