moved for leave to introduce Bill C-209, An Act to prevent the use of the Internet to distribute pornographic material involving children.
Mr. Speaker, we see governments at all levels around the world moving toward this type of legislation. One of the most despicable crimes we have in the world involve pedophiles and individuals who use the Internet to lure unsuspecting children for despicable acts.
The premise of my bill would give ISP providers some responsibility to monitor the sites and encourage them to inform authorities of any information they may run across so direct action can be taken.
If the Conservatives believe in being tough on crime, this is something they should be working on immediately to help reduce child pornography on the Internet.
