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.
