I was at a fitness conference a few weeks ago and one of the doctors who works in the ICU told us that from his observation over 90% of the people in the ICU are overweight/obese. The Government should be encouraging fitness activities as much as possible, especially outdoors. Instead they have police arresting kids for being in the parks or skating at outdoor rinks.
Is this your experience? I was leaving a track the other day that has literally hundreds of people walking around or playing full-squad soccer matches and a cop literally drove into the parking lot and left without doing anything. Hundreds of people are there every day. I'm outside in a field 4-5 days a week, working out (either alone or with some friends) and have never even seen someone get hassled by cops.
Not my personal experience but I've seen a lot of such encounters in Canada on YouTube over past months. Some have grabbed national attention but not from the mainstream media of course. Glad to see things loosening up finally.
Source? There's a big difference between being given a ticket and being arrested. Something tells me you have the 2 confused.
