On Saturday September 25 at about 9:30 pm, Chestermere RCMP were called to a residence on Stonemere Close regarding a large party going on that was not compliant with a large white enclosed tent on the property. The Chief Medical Officer of Health Orders at the time of the event, stipulated the gathering was not to exceed 10 people and since the gathering was in an enclosed tent attached to the garage it was considered an indoor gathering. The RCMP liaised with Alberta Health Services and confirmed an offence had occurred which resulted in the issuance of tickets to the property representative for offences under section 73 (10 of the Public Health Act. “We acknowledge that the covid pandemic has been hard on people in many different ways but it is part of our sworn duty to uphold the law. We do encourage any residents that are planning events to check with Alberta Health Services to ensure their planned event is compliant with the existing health orders and that they stay aware of the changes that occur in the orders. We would prefer to answer questions in advance of an event to help ensure there is no need for enforcement actions. If we don’t have the answer or are not the agency with jurisdiction over the context of the question we will help direct the question or concern to the appropriate channel.” Sgt. Stubbs, acting Detachment Commander.
