One person is facing charges after Toronto Police broke up a large party in the city’s downtown core during the early hours of March 18.
A media relations spokesperson for the Toronto Police Service confirmed to Daily Hive that officers responded to reports of a “noisy party” near King Street and Spadina Avenue.
Connie Osborne said approximately 20 people were in attendance at the party, and that they dispersed when police arrived around 2 am.

Although the gathering was held overnight on March 17, Osborne said there is “nothing to suggest this was a St Patrick’s Day party.”
The organizer of the gathering has been charged under the Reopening Ontario Act, Osborne said, noting that a fine will be issued at a future court date.
Individuals who are found in violation of the act can face fines of $750.
Toronto is currently in the Grey-Lockdown zone of the province’s COVID-19 reopening framework.
In the Grey Zone, indoor events and social gatherings are prohibited, except with members of the same household.
