Is this going to come to Canada....

8-year-old environmental enforcers???
The youngsters are among almost 5,000 residents who in some cases are being offered £500 rewards if they provide evidence of minor infractions.

One in six councils contacted by the Telegraph said they had signed up teams of "environment volunteers" who are being encouraged to photograph or video neighbours guilty of dog fouling, littering or "bin crimes".

The "covert human intelligence sources", as some local authorities describe them, are also being asked to pass on the names of neighbours they believe to be responsible, or take down their number-plates.

Ealing Council in West London said: "There are hundreds of Junior Streetwatchers, aged 8-10 years old, who are trained to identify and report enviro-crime issues such as graffiti and fly-tipping."

Harlow Council in Essex said: "We currently have 25 Street Scene Champions who work with the council. They are all aged between 11 to 14. They are encouraged to report the aftermath of enviro-crimes such as vandalism to bus shelters, graffiti, abandoned vehicles, fly-tipping etc. They do this via telephone or email direct to the council."

Typical dictatorship behaviour - take the child when he or she is young and impressionable and turn them into a tool of the repressive state. Worked well for the NSDAP and even better for the various flavours of communism throughout the 20th century. Good old George Orwell was a prophet, even if he was off by a few years. I think there is still enough of a cantankerous gene in the Canadian body politic that this idiocy won't show up here any time soon. The Brits have been on this destructive path ever since the Conservative party putsch that removed Maggie Thatcher, if not before. A nation that was know for its fondness of eating sheep has become a nation of sheep. One Brit with a side of mint jelly coming right up......

How dare the citizenry report crimes for recompense! What a bunch of Nazis. The roasting of Jews is sure to follow, and my comparison to, say, Klaus Barbie, is surely appropriate and justified. This is EXACTLY the same situation.

But they wont call in to report rape, child abuse, child porn, or armed robberies. That sort of thing is ok with the leftys.
