1. Block Child Pornography

Under section 161 of the Criminal Code of Canada, it is a crime to distribute child pornography. “Any person who imports, distributes, sells or possesses, for the purpose of distribution or sale, any child pornography is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding ten years”.

This is the law of the land. However, internet service providers such as Rogers, Bell Canada, Telus, Shaw and others distribute tens of thousands of pages of child pornography every day.

The Canadian Government ha decided that these corporations are above the law, and have given them complete immunity from prosecution.

The result is the abuse of hundreds of thousands of children and this must stop.

2. Stop internet sex crimes against children

Internet images of child rape, abuse and exploitation are an international problem. Every year, the volume of images and the levels of violence and degradation are increasing at a disturbing rate through the medium of the Internet.

The global community recognizes that children are victimized by those who engage in the production, exhibition, distribution, and consumption of child sexual abuse images and exploitation.

To stop this internet industry of child sex crime, a broad national and international coalition of individuals, organizations, law enforcement agencies, and governments with a shared determination is needed.

Educational campaigns and training for parents, teachers, students, legislators, and law enforcement personnel is not enough.

Canadian LAWS must be the legislative protection base for children. Currentlly, weak laws and even more pathetic sentencing from judges allow child sex predators back into the community. The Child Safe Nation coaltion will work during the year of 2009 to see a force of change.
