The federal government introduced legislation on Tuesday requiring internet service providers to notify authorities of any reports of child pornography or face fines and possible imprisonment.
"A mandatory reporting regime across Canada will improve law enforcement's ability to detect offences and help reduce the availability of online pornography, facilitate the rescue of victims and help identify and apprehend offenders,"
Punishments for sole proprietorship ISPs would range from fines of $1,000 to up to $10,000, or six months imprisonment. For corporations, fines would range from $10

I dont support porn but i do support rights on the internet to me this doesn't sound like its a good move , and i cant believe some of you guys you are actually going to support this, and yet you both said (government is bad or this is bad)
I wonder why all this talk on child porn what about adult porn? if you ask me there is more crime into the adult porn industry, if you dont like whats on the net, don't click on it, forget it about and move on, same thing goes about pirated stuff on the net.
you got to remember folks these same people who are pushing for this bill are these same people that have pushed for H1N1 vaccines and of cruse a new world order.

I will allow my privacy to take a back seat to dealing with child porn any day my friends.
Sorry but these children should come first and our paranoid conspiracie theories second.
But even if one person is caught and thrown in jail for having, making or viewing child porn, that's one less A-hole which can hurt my children.

But the picture itself isn't a crime or in point of fact police would be the biggest most horrible criminals in the world because they no doubt have the biggest child pornography collection in their evidence lockers. A picture is just a bunch of colors mixed together and if someone is offended by one that is their own problem and the solution is not to take a copy rather than punish others for the victimless crime.
