Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says there is no tolerance for those flouting orders to socially distance from others in an effort to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus.

“You all think you’re invincible. You’re not. Enough is enough,” he warned in an address to Canadians on Monday from Rideau Cottage, where he is currently in self-isolation.

“Go home and stay home.”

Trudeau’s warning comes as provinces and territories over the weekend threatened to roll out fines and potentially even criminal enforcement measures like arrests in order to enforce social distancing.

Trudeau said he will be speaking with premiers from across the country on Monday evening to discuss how they can co-ordinate to crack down on those ignoring social distancing.

“There is more that can be done, there is more that needs to be done around messaging,” he said, noting that the government will be rolling out an advertising campaign aimed at driving that home.

He urged Canadians to understand that “listening [to those directives] is your duty, and staying home is your way to serve.”
If Canadians do not get the message and stay home, the government could act to force them.

“We will look at different measures that could be necessary to enforce these measures. We’d rather not … I can tell you that we haven’t taken anything off the table from the Emergencies Act, new and existing measures under the Quarantine Act,” Trudeau continued.

“We are impressing upon Canadians to do this of their own will.”

    I'm a bit confused what I should do for user/vote relationship. Should it be a one to many from user or a one to one?

    So that a user can only vote once per thread

    I want to say it's one to one, but in all honesty I'm a bit fuzzy there. I can recommend JoyFreak's sister site AdminIntel - Admin & Webmaster Resource where there are lots for people of varying degrees of expertise with development, you likely can get a far more precise answer there!
