Canadian tries to dodge COVID-19 curfew by walking leashed man

MONTREAL – Canadian police have fined a woman whose dogged determination to dodge a strict new curfew saw her taking a man for a walk – on a leash.

Quebec province has imposed an 8pm curfew in a bid to slow the spread of the coronavirus, but residents are allowed to take dogs for walks close to home. Police in Sherbrooke, about 150km east of Montreal, on Saturday stopped a woman who was walking with a man on a leash.
