About On Kiddie Porn
In January 2001, the Supreme Court of Canada handed down its ruling on the Charter challenge brought to the "kiddie porn law" by Robin Sharpes case. Political and legal commentator Stan Persky and former senior justice department policy advisor John Dixon follow the course of Sharpes case through the courts from his arrest in 1995 to the verdict.
While favouring sanctions for the possession of material whose production requires crimes to be committed, Persky and Dixon remain equally concerned that child pornography law not violate constitutionally guaranteed freedoms such as thought, belief and expression values central to democratic life.
Does the law as it now stands, with the Supreme Courts modifications, measure up? On Kiddie Porns clearly thoughtout analysis let the reader decide.
