Montreal parks will close if public doesn’t respect coronavirus rules, mayor warns

Montreal parks could shutter to the public if people gather there during the novel coronavirus health crisis.

Mayor Valérie Plante issued the warning during the city’s executive committee meeting on Wednesday.

“I am asking everyone to respect the rules and to not crowd the parks,” she said. “The last thing we want to do is to have to close them.

“But if it’s necessary, if the rules aren’t respected, we will obviously have to close them.”

She noted that warmer weather should be setting in throughout the month of April and will lift the spirits of Montrealers.
