OTTAWA – The federal Liberal government is hiring security contractors to enforce quarantine compliance in 35 cities across Canada.
On Jan. 29, 2021, Dr. Theresa Tam said, “Starting today there will be increased security contractors that would go and do more, I would say door knocking, to check on people who are in quarantine so I think that starts either today or tomorrow in Toronto, Montreal and broadening that to 35 cities so we can have an added layer of assurance people are observing that quarantine in terms of compliance.”
