moved for leave to introduce Bill C-506, An Act to prevent the use of the Internet to distribute pornographic material involving children.
Mr. Speaker, the Internet is not a safe place for children. In Ontario, this week alone, we saw 23 arrests of users, distributors and producers of child pornography. There is nothing more horrific than the crimes that involve children and that are committed against children.
In spite of the best efforts by police forces, this problem of child pornography is getting worse.
As legislators, we have the responsibility to do everything we can to stop the use of the Internet to distribute child pornography. The legislation which I table today would make Internet service providers more responsible for the content that is being transmitted to their customers.
