Court refuses Hasidic request to break curfew

Representatives of the Hasidic community went to court to try to get an exception to the curfew, but have been turned down.

In general in Quebec we’ve been obedient to the curfew, accepting its limitation on our lives. This isn’t so true of other places, where large protests have bucked against similar restrictions.

But the clocks go forward tonight, and with more light in the evening, people may be more tempted to transgress.
