Whether in Canada, the US or the UK, surely the police would need "probable cause" or "reasonable suspicion" to perform an arrest? A childs'

simply drew a picture. When I was that age, I was forever drawing pics of my dad with guns, tanks and full scale battles going on, as he was a soldier
and I looked up to him for it. The only concern that ever got raised when I received my reports was that my creative writing tended to focus on
I would assume Canada has similiar laws as the UK and the person arrested would have recourse to make a complaint about wrongful arrest and
harrassement with a view to receiving an apology and compensation.
