In New Brunswick, the RCMP are investigating online parties where young people are encouraged to participate in illegal activities.
The Saint-Léonard detachment in the North West says it has noticed similarities in the complaints received about these evenings live on Instagram.
According to the RCMP, anyone can take part. After the live broadcast, some people are invited to a private chat session in which they are encouraged to do illegal things such as using drugs or alcohol or engaging in sexual acts.
The RCMP urges parents to be vigilant.
Anyone who has been enticed into engaging in online sexual acts or who has been sexually scammed or scammed or has been bullied through social media is invited to join the RCMP.
