In February 2009, I read an article by Dan Michaluk from Hicks Morley Hamilton Stewart Storie LLP on the passage of Ontario Bill 37, the Child Pornography Reporting Act, which will amend the Child and Family Services Act. This legislation will require Ontario organizations, among others, who find child pornography on their computer systems to report it to the authorities, or face serious penalties. However, to this date the Bill has not received proclamation to come into force. Why am I thinking about this now? Read the full article on Slaw.ca.
