Oh, Canada. One little boy from Ontario has the nation talking after he got himself added to Santa's naughty list in the most epic way.


In the early evening hours on Christmas, police at the Ontario Provincial Police department fielded a phone call from one very unhappy little boy. There was no emergency, the child was just mad because someone had given him snow pants as a Christmas gift and not something cool like a toy. The little boy wanted police to step in and handle the situation. Police Sgt. Kerry Schmidt explained to CTV News that officers took the proper steps to make sure that there was no emergency. Unfortunately, that process takes about thirty minutes of time away from real emergencies. Sgt Schmidt wants people to think of this as a teachable moment:

Parents or caregivers need to make sure their children understand the consequences of calling 911 and what constitutes an emergency... Kids need to realize that calling 911 is critical and serious. We don't want to waste resources going after calls that aren't an emergency.


To further the message, Schmidt tweeted about the incident:


Some people took the opportunity to thank the police for responding to every call.



Others complained about the child or his parents.







But a lot of people were kind of sympathetic to the kid's plight... If nothing else it was kind of funny.











Remember guys, fashion emergencies are not actual emergency situations and typically do not warrant a call to 911. Teach the children. Also, snow pants suck.
