Manitobans may face fines, jail for not reporting child porn

Manitobans could be the first Canadians to face jail time and fines for failing to report suspected cases of child pornography.

CBC News has learned the provincial government will introduce legislation Wednesday that will amend the Child and Family Services Act to expand the definition of child abuse to include child pornography.

Under the legislation, anyone caught not reporting suspected cases of child pornography could face up to two years behind bars or a maximum $50,000 fine ? the same penalty for those who fail to report child abuse.

"Child porn is not just a picture ? it's a sexual assault committed against a child," said Lianna McDonald, director of the Canadian Centre for Child Protection. "It's an act of child abuse that needs to be stopped."

The agency runs the national tip line for reporting child sexual exploitation that Manitobans will be asked to call if they notice a possible case of child pornography.

McDonald said the legislation won't solely target internet service providers, but everyone from computer repair technicians to a babysitter who stumbles upon photos in someone's home.

Excellent Move!!!


It is certainly a good move, with evidense that the viewer, did in fact see it, and did nothing., such as calling the appropriate person(s) to get some kind of action.

As kind heart says, this is an assault on the child, which is a crime. >:( >:(

I agree. THe pedophile liberation people on amw.com have justified child porn as OK because most of they say was made years ago. BS! These freaks need 10's of thousands of images to feed themselves, it is not a harmless crime.
