Once again, his initiative turned out to be a miserable failure, when only 20 of his followers responded.

In total, the police handed over 17 tickets of $ 1,500 to the demonstrators on site. However, no arrests were made.

It should be noted that by appearing in front of Sainte-Justine Hospital, the protesters were contravening the government decree prohibiting demonstrations within 50 meters of schools and hospitals.

Very quickly, the police informed the people present that if they did not leave the premises immediately, they would be given a ticket.

Some of them complied, but others preferred to disobey by staying put, including François Amalega.

“I will wait for my ticket,” Amalega told her faithful companions.

For some opponents of health measures, receiving a statement of offense seemed to be fun.

One of them, who recently boasted on social networks of wanting to accumulate as many tickets as possible, also joined the group that was sidelined by the police for the sole purpose. to receive his fine of $ 1,500.

«[Les tickets], it’s just paper for us! ”he said to anyone who would listen.

While the police were busy identifying all the offenders and distributing them tickets, a laboratory technician from the hospital stepped outside to share her thoughts on the group led by Francois Amalega.

“What you are doing is unacceptable. There are children here who have just had the operation and are looking at you. It’s totally disrespectful of you, you don’t have your place here, ”thundered the health worker, leaving the demonstrators speechless.

Since the start of the pandemic, activist François Amalega has been arrested several times and received more than $ 60,000 in tickets.
