Quebec's COVID-19 vaccine plan runs contrary to new federal guidelines

Apparently, the woman attempted to argue that she was walking her dog when she was approached by authorities.

The faux canine incident took place in Sherbrooke, a city in southern Quebec.

Officials reportedly told a local media outlet that the couple did not cooperate with police.

The wife reportedly told police she was just out "walking her dog" near their home.

In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Quebec has instituted a curfew between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. following a recent surge in COVID-19 infections, according to the BBC.

Sherbrooke police tried to explain the new law to the couple, who reacted by saying they understood the law and fines would not stop them from breaking more curfews in the future.

A curfew has been imposed in Quebec, from 8pm until 5am, and there are few reasons as to why you're allowed to leave your home.

"This is a hard decision I made to curb the spread of the virus", Premier Francois Legault said of the curfew in a Facebook post.

"Pfizer and BioNTech's Phase 3 study for the COVID-19 vaccine was created to evaluate the vaccine's safety and efficacy following a two-dose schedule, separated by 21 days", Christina Antoniou said. The French-speaking Canadian province has a population of more than 8.4 million. Hundreds of people are in intensive care, fighting for their lives.

The curfew has seen sharp resistance from some.

It didn't take long for people to find odd ways to attempt to dodge Quebec's new curfew. A helicopter hovered overhead, and police cruisers lined the streets.
