Toronto police have fined 14 people after they were caught attending a party in Scarborough.
Officers were called to a large crowd of approximately 50 people at home in the area of St. Clair Ave. East and Kingston Road.
A total of 14 tickets for $880 were issued to people attending the party for failing to comply with the provincial order restricting social gatherings.
“The education phase is over, the warnings are over. We’re taking a very aggressive approach and charging people,” said Deputy Chief Peter Yuen.
“As we see the numbers are going up, the virus continues to spread, we are very concerned about public safety and public health. We are receiving calls, working with the city agencies, and attending calls where there are large gatherings.”
Yuen says they are continuing to investigate the origin of the party and what took place that night and further charges are possible.
In Ontario, there are only 10 people allowed indoors and 25 people allowed outdoors.
Police are reminding people to keep house parties under control.
