Canada Can't Quarantine A Whole City To Stop Coronavirus: Experts'In Canada, such a broad, unspecific quarantine measure like this would certainly violate our Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms because it would be a restriction on people’s rights that are not justifiable.' EVEN IF this was a big enough threat to the safety of Canadians it would be doubtful Canada would have the balls to restrict travel from a certain area let’s alone quarantine a city .. the city in question would go feral Rights & freedoms don't exist once one is contagious with a potentially lethal infection. Quarantine = confinement or isolation. The degree to which confinement occurs depends on the extent of the epidemic & the lethality of the infection.
