COVID-19 pandemic is turning Canada into a nation of snitches

OTTAWA – As fear and anxiety rises among a population ordered to stay home as much as possible to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, is Canada becoming a nation of snitches turning on each other to enforce social distancing?

Absolutely, experts say.

“People are being told that you have to snitch. It has become the civic duty of a good citizen. If you see a social gathering, if you see people having groups of guests over, then be a good citizen and report it,” said criminologist and former MP Maria Mourani.
