Mississauga Teen Dials 911: “My Parents Forced Me to go on Vacation”

A Mississauga teenager is likely in a lot of trouble with her parents after she dialed 911 to complain that they took her on vacation with them.
Police responded on Tuesday to a rental cottage in the town of Trent Hills, according to an article from the Northumberland News.
Upon finding the 15-year-old safe with her family, police cautioned her about her behaviour, Northumberland OPP said.
“Although she perceived this as a real issue, it was not an appropriate use of 911,” OPP Const. Steve Bates told The News. “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.”
This incident should hopefully help some people remember to reserve the usage of 911 for actual emergencies, rather than unhappy vacations.
