U.S. perv backlash on web - Petitions urge deportation

Published on Nov 04, 2006

The Toronto Sun has reported that two online campaigns to have exiled U.S. teacher Malcolm Watson booted back to the States are gaining momentum. A petition addressed to Premier Dalton McGuinty states, "We want Malcolm Watson sent back to the United States of America, where he SHOULD serve his sentence in jail, where pedophiles belong."

Another online campaign on this issue at gopetition.com is addressed to Citizenship and Immigration Minister Monte Solberg.

Watson, a 35-year-old former school teacher who lives in St. Catharines with his wife and children, was arrested by security guards in New York state after they spotted him fondling and kissing a 15-year-old student in a mall parking lot.
