Ontario teen calls 911 after being “forced” to go on vacation with parents

A Mississauga teen has been warned not to waste the time of Ontario Provincial Police after she called 911 to report that her “parents forced her to go on vacation with them.”

According to Metro News, officers responded to a rental cottage on the Trent River, east of Peterborough only to determine that there was no emergency and their time had been wasted by a 15-year-old girl.

Northumberland OPP Const. Stephen Bates said that “This appeared to be a case of a teenager being a teenager. Although she perceived this as a real issue, it was not an appropriate use of 911.”

“Calls such as this tie up police resources which could impact the safety of others in the community who are in real need of assistance,” Bates added.

This girl is exactly the kind of voter Trudeau is looking for in 3 years. She will fit right in with his other low info voters.

Self absorbed entitlement in action. Just like our Numero Uno Minister.

Take the parents to child care services which is what they and human rights commissions are set up to serve – brats, child and adult, who feel sorry for themselves

No question. But the parents, not our courts need to exercise the punishment and the police and the courts need to support them. Her parents should ground her for the rest of the summer, never mind take her to a summer cottage on a river.
