WOLFVILLE, N.S. — A university student in Wolfville, N.S., faces a fine for allegedly violating public health orders after police broke up a party Thursday night.
In a statement Friday evening, RCMP say someone complained about a large gathering of students just before 11 p.m. on Thursday.
Police say there were about 75 people in the house when they arrived.
Police dispersed the party-goers and handed the main resident of the home a summary offence ticket for failing to comply with a direction under the Emergency Measures Act.
The student now faces a possible fine of nearly $700.
Social gatherings in Nova Scotia are limited to 10 people if attendees will not be adhering to physical distancing measures.
