The Dollarama chain “is exposed to a closure order” if the fined branches do not begin to follow health instructions, said the Minister of Labor, Jean Boulet.
In an interview with the program “À votre affaires” Thursday, the minister explained that Dollarama has not respected the rules since the start of the pandemic.
“It’s a recurring problem. Initially, we did a lot of education and awareness, but after that we noticed that there was no respect for wearing a mask, no respect for the two-meter distance, almost all the health instructions were raped, ”he said.
A total of 11 tickets were issued in nine stores of the chain. 124 correction notices were also issued in stores of the banner by the Committee on Standards, Equity, Health and Safety of work (CNESST).
Following this new shock, Mr. Boulet wanted to send a message to consumers.
“I don’t want to guide consumers. They need to be aware of what’s going on at Dollarama. When deciding to buy, it’s important to go in an environment that is safe. And currently, what we have found is that we do not listen in Dollarama. ”
