Ontario reverses pandemic policing measures

After receiving widespread backlash, Ontario has walked back some of it’s pandemic policing powers.

Ontario police will no longer be able to stop and question anyone they suspect might be violating health measures. 

Community groups slammed the measures enacted in recent days. 

Land-travel between Quebec and Ontario remains restricted to essential trips. 


Quebec vaccine update

Quebec reached a major vaccination milestone in recent days with more than a quarter of the population having received at least one dose. 

That’s well over two million doses in Quebecers’ arms. 

Most of those shots were administered in Montreal, which has tallied over 600 thousand doses. 

Most adults above 60 have now received a dose. 


Undergrad survey in motion

Finally, in Concordia news, the student union has launched a survey on students learning online. 

According to the CSU, the survey will gauge students’ feelings on remote learning to advocate next year.
