LARGE GROUP EXEMPTION:
BLACK LIVES MATTER MARCH
7 JUNE 2020 IN THE CITY OF HAMILTON
Whereas the Minister of National Security considers that the proposed Black Lives Matter March on Sunday 7 June 2020 is an exceptional circumstance justifying an exemption from the prohibition in regulation 4(1) of the Emergency Powers (COVID-19 Continuing Precautions) Regulations 2020 on groups of more than ten persons assembling;
Now therefore, the Minister grants an exemption under regulation 4(5) of those Regulations permitting a group of more than ten persons to assemble on Sunday 7 June 2020 from 12pm to 3:45pm at Front Street, City of Hamilton and to march along the following route:
