Mr. James Moore (Port Moody—Westwood—Port Coquitlam, CPC)
moved for leave to introduce Bill C-292, an act to amend the Criminal Code (child pornography).
Mr. Speaker, this bill enforces a minimum sentence of two years in prison for persons convicted of transmitting, making available, distributing, selling, importing, exporting, or possessing child pornography for the purposes of transmission, making available, distribution, sale or exportation of any sort of child pornography.
The Liberals have talked for a long time about getting tough on child pornographers. This bill would put real teeth into our laws so that children would be safe from the people who would abuse them for the sake of child pornography.
