Ontario police are once again asking residents to stop calling 911 for non-emergencies. 

London Police Service was forced to remind people on Tuesday that they shouldn't call the cops on their neighbours just because they are singing an off-key ballad.

According to police, the 911 call was made because the "neighbour is singing really loud and they are terrible at singing!"

Yet, this isn't the first time that the emergency hotline has been used for smaller incidents. 

An Ontario driver once dialled 911 because they were stuck behind a snowplow that was going too slow.
