moved for leave to introduce Bill C-404, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (failure to prevent access to child pornography).
Mr. Speaker, I am introducing a bill today that would amend the Criminal Code to ensure that anyone who would permit another person to access child pornography or who would fail to take reasonable steps to prevent access to such material be penalized under the law.
The bill is dedicated to Holly Jones, a young girl who was murdered on May 12, 2003, in my riding of Davenport. We need to protect all children from exploitation, and the key to this is cutting off access.
I strongly encourage all my colleagues to support the bill.
