Toronto Blue Jays players respond to reports they could be fined $750,000 if they're caught leaving their hotel

Here's the applicable Canadian quarantine rule:

When in Toronto (assuming the federal government approves games in Toronto and not just the training that is currently taking place), the Blue Jays and visiting teams will be bubbled at Rogers Centre and in the hotel attached to the stadium.

Part of Canada’s Quarantine Act reads: “Every person who fails to comply with an obligation imposed under section 35, subsection 39(1) or 44(3) or section 51 is guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine of not more than $750,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not more than six months, or to both.”
