LOCAL NEWS BLANC-SABLON – FEBRUARY 26, 2021: Be safe! Follow the public health guidelines during March break, or receive a fine!
CFBS was speaking by email with Denis Chartier, of the local Sûreté du Québec office here in Blanc-Sablon. Officer Chartier would like to notify the following message to the population:
"With the spring break period, the Sûreté du Québec are sending reinforcements on the Lower North Shore to make sure that the Public Health measures will be observed by all. So in the next week, people from the Lower North Shore will see new SQ officers in the area to enforce Public Health rules, along with the regular SQ officers of the local police station.
To be very clear, the Sûreté du Québec officers are coming from outside of the North shore, and will be COVID tested prior to being deployed on the Lower North Shore, with no exceptions. Most importantly, our citizens from all LNS communities, not only in Blanc-Sablon, need to understand that the reinforcement officers coming have orders to ensure the strict observance of the Public Health rules. Have a safe and happy March break from all of us at the Sûreté du Québec office in Blanc-Sablon." - Denis Chartier, of the local Sûreté du Québec office in Blanc-Sablon.
