20th Anniversary of Canada’s Child Pornography Law

August 23rd, 2013

Queer Ontario recognizes the 20th anniversary of Canada’s Child Pornography Law.
Twenty years ago this month, the child pornography provisions in the Canadian Criminal Code came into effect. It was then and remains today a controversial law. As in all issues which affect LGBTQ communities, Queer Ontario will continue to promote critical thinking and challenging debate on a number of social policies, laws and social norms that regulate our communities.  QO stands against child abuse and exploitation of anyone regardless of age, yet we feel that the child porn law and its enforcement should also be a subject of continuing discussions, critical analysis and empirical investigation, all of which are threatened by existing laws on this topic.
