  1. Take their masks and handout for free or donate back to hospitals.

  2. With a measly fine of 500$ a day, of-course they’re gonna set up shop the next day. Don’t fine them a fixed price, fine them by percentages of revenue. 95% should be a good percentage. Make them lose their money, not merely gain less.

  3. Shame. I truly have no words for how horrible some people are being during this heartbreaking time. What scum.

  4. serious question: is there no legal provision that already exists, which can be used to seize their supply of hoarded masks?

  5. Countdown to the followup story where they tell us noble heroic victims they actually (think they)are…big picture of their sad faces with their kids up front…

  6. Looks like some folks need a bigger fine and some things confiscated.

  7. It doesn’t help that they appear to be Asian.

  8. The mayor is pissed and has forwarded this case to the RCMP. Expect these idiots to get federal charges and probably some real jail time and way bigger fines. This will not be tolerated in Canada.

  9. Fine them $10000 a day. Or throw them in jail..Fuckn cunts.

  10. Screw a fine, throw them in jail for six months. The financial burden that follows will be well deserved.

  11. How else where they gonna pay off the fine?

  12. Obviously they were makinh more than they were fined, so just slap them with a huge fine. See if they dare to be back again.

  13. They’re obviously making a profit even after the fines. After two ignored warnings, it’s probably time to consider doubling or tripling the fine and threatening arrest the next time they’re caught, otherwise they just won’t stop.

  14. Simply put their faces out there. Problem solved. Much less paperwork

  15. Simple solution. Seize their inventory and donate it to hospitals.

  16. Take their product and fine them again

  17. We need to shame these people.

  18. Times like these bring out the best and worst of humans

  19. Yes, this is what happens when you fine a business less money than they’re making.

    Almost like, if you can believe this, we’ve seen this behavior before.

  20. Why are they so greedy? Heck, if the masks were ordered from China, meaning they did not buy out local masks supply, if they sold it at a slight mark up for effort and time, they can turn a profit and be lauded as heroes for helping the community. Then the mayor would be an idiot for shutting them down.

    But gotta make that massive money profit and gotta gouge your friends and neighbors….

  21. I really need to get off this sub. From China secretly building islands off the West Philippine Sea, to assholes like these who are profiting off a pandemic…I want to believe there are good humans out there and not only fucking scumbags like these people. Reading worldnews during self isolation is not good for my mental health lol…

  22. >They actually, if you can believe this, they came back a second day

    gotta pay the fines somehow

  23. I’ve seen targeted advertisements for those masks online that has worse price gouging and they weren’t even actually n95 respirators, just regular masks. Not that this isn’t still a completely shitty thing to do.

  24. The thing is with cunts, is that they’ll be cunts the next day, too.

  25. Well why not they probably turned a profit even after the fine.

    I’m a fan of seizing the goods of profiteers, and making them available to disaster response

  26. C’mon didn’t a couple make 100k hoarding sanitizer and re-selling from Costco. Some people are just evil.

  27. All product should have been confiscated.

    These people are fuckin twats.

  28. Yeah well all they got was a $500 fine. I’m sure their sales more than made up for it. I can’t fathom why these turds aren’t in prison.

  29. >You made a few thousand dollars doing this? Here’s a $500 license fee.
