Protesters ascended Sherbrooke Street at 2:30 p.m. and marched through Saint Catherine and Berry streets with the intention of joining La Fontaine Park at the end of their rally.
Messages such as “We are not lab rats” or “No vaccine passport” appeared on the banners of participants in the “We are all united in difference” march.
However, the trip includes passing in front of the Notre Dame Hospital, located in front of the park, and therefore could subject attendees to fines ranging from $1,000 to $12,000.
The Lego government passed a special law Thursday limiting the scope of events related to the COVID-19 vaccine or health measures in front of certain public places, including schools and health institutions.
Police officers from the Montreal City Police Department were present at the scene to supervise the demonstration.
