The Stasi were the secret police set up in Communist East Germany to subdue its population in a reign of terror.

And we see the same “snitch” system developing in Canada where the rights of citizens are being stripped away under the COVID-1984 lockdowns. With the help of a neighbourhood snitch, police raided a home in Gatineau, Quebec to break up a small gathering of six people on New Year’s Eve.
The Blaze explains:
Some residents in Gatineau held a private New Year’s Eve party. Neighbors snitched on the partygoers, and police arrived at the home around 11:30 p.m., according to CTV News. There were six adults inside the home preparing to ring in the new year.
There is an unsettling video showing several police officers physically remove a man from the home. The man resists but is eventually forcefully plucked from the house by police officers, one of the cops is not wearing a face mask.
The video shows a group of police bring the man to the ground outside the residence. There is also a female being detained outside. In the viral video that has been viewed more than 4 million times, the sound of a female shrieking can be heard.

And snitches were busy in British Columbia as well. The Vancouver Sun reports:

Vancouver police say they responded to 34 calls for gatherings and issued four tickets of $2,300 each to event organizers, including one to the owner of a restaurant near Granville and Davie Street found hosting a private party with around 100 people in attendance, and serving alcohol at 11 p.m.
