Everyone has the right to a fair trial. That’s why, when new laws were created to regulate the behaviour of Ontarians in 2020, we studied them intensely and learned them as fast as possible. When we learned that people were being given up to $100,000 in fines, and most people had valid defences, we jumped to the opportunity to participate in this brand new legal landscape.
If you were charged under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act or the Reopening Ontario Act and received a general “breach of an order” ticket, you’re in the right place.
Lighthouse has a team of paralegals who have trailblazed these types of offences and have defended thousands— from individuals, to small businesses, to corporations–across the province. In fact, the new owner of Lighthouse is the only legal professional to create and teach other legal professionals about these tickets, what they mean, and how to interpret and fight them.
These types of tickets include those for protesting, refusing to mask, gathering when prohibited, and opening a business when prohibited.
These tickets may seem minor, or not real at all– but they are completely real, and valid. The prosecutors will want their pound of flesh, so make sure you have the right advocates in your corner.
