Welcome to Child Safe Nation!
Child Safe Nation collected over 120,000 signatures of Canadians who love children and want them protected from pedophiles. Thanks to ALL of you who collected petitions and signed them.
On December 5, 2011 Parliament voted on the Crime Bill which included section 163.1 changes to the “child porn” laws. It passed 157 to 127.
UPDATE : September 2012 : All clauses came into effect in Sept. see new code:
http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/C-46/page-77.html#docCont however more needs to be done. One more issue – a separate law governs the sex offender registry. Sex offender information Act – must be changed to allow public access to information on child sex predators.
( CFA has a petition calling for change to the sex offender registry – please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 403-295-2159 to order yours.)
Also visit our website: www.StopPedophiles.ca to see some who have been convicted of child sex offenses.
We were appalled at some of the opposition tactics and issues raised that opposed protecting children. Arguments like jail time does not solve the pedophile problem. Mandatory sentences are too harsh. Jails will fill up and cost us immense dollars.
What of the harm to a young innocent child MPs, who opposed this change ?
Thankfully the Conservative majority was able to deliver the number of votes it did to pass this law onto the Senate. In early 2012 the Senate will debate and vote on this matter.
GOOD NEWS is ahead.
Those who helped in every way – donations, speaking publicly, educating friends, calling MPs, writing letters in papers, signing petitions, and so many other actions have produced results.
We still would like stronger penalities for child sex offenders but this is a start. And the term “child pornography” must still change in law and public dialogue.
