Stephen Harper says tougher laws coming for child sex offences
Proposal from the Conservatives includes compelling the spouse of an accused person to testify in child porn cases, and consecutive sentences for those convicted of offences against multiple victims.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced tougher laws for child sex offences Thursday, trumpeting the proposed legislation as the most comprehensive attack against sex crimes on kids.
“We’re doing this because every victim matters, because every child matters,” Harper said at an event in Toronto.
“Our goal is a Canada where all of our children are safe all the time and everywhere.”
The proposed legislation would ensure sentencing takes into account when someone has committed offences against multiple children.
The new measures would see those people serve consecutive sentences for each child they have victimized.
“Sadly there are truly evil people out there. The fact is we don’t understand them and we don’t particularly care to. We understand only that they must be dealt with,” Harper said.
“To protect our children we must create a justice system that is more responsive to victims and especially more responsive to children and to the families of children who have been victimized by sexual predators.”
Harper’s Conservative government has brought in a number of mandatory minimum penalties for various crimes over the years and this law would increase both minimum and maximum penalties for child sexual offences.
The government is also looking to ensure the spouse of a person charged with child pornography offences could be obliged to testify in court.
Harper said the proposed legislation would overhaul a system that had become “very unbalanced” when it came to protecting child sex abuse victims.
He singled out the case of Gordon Stuckless as an example.
The 64-year-old — who was once an usher at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens — was originally convicted in 1997 for sex assaults on 24 boys while he worked at the famed hockey arena between 1969 and 1988.
Harper pointed out that Stuckless was originally sentenced to two years less a day, a sentence which led to the suicide of the victim who brought the sex abuse scandal to light.
Stuckless’ sentence was later increased to five years and he was out on parole in 2001 after serving two-thirds of it.
He now faces nearly 100 fresh charges, all laid in the past year, which relate to alleged offences that took place decades ago.
“There have been gaps in our justice system,” said Harper. “These gaps show that the system did not properly value our most precious and valuable treasures — our children.”
As usual we see the Conservatives are hoping to employ Hysteria in order to strip more minorities ( youth and sexual minorities of their rights). First of all, there is no such thing as Child Pornography. All pornography is exactly the same regardless of the individuals involved. As it is only intent that determines the quality of all acts. This is mirrored in sexuality as there are only 2 types of sex in this known Universe. Consensual or non-consensual sex. As we are now aware that all Human Beings are the same regardless of intellect, age, size, race, religion etc. Only intent determines if any act is consensual or non-consensual. Sexuality has no morality whatsoever apart from that which we select to invent and impose upon it. Just as there are no differences among Humanity apart from those we choose to invent and impose upon it.
Fortunately soon this Harper government will be gone.
Project Freedom Canada will once again take the Federal Government to the Supreme Court to rectify the illegal amendments made to our Criminal Code after Harper is ousted. We will then have an “Open Door” to pursue a massive class-action civil suit against the Federal Conservative Party in Canada on behalf of all Youth aged 14-15 from the time of Feb/09 when the illegal amendments in the criminal code was ratified; as well as all sexual minorities victimized through these new illegal amendments.
So sit back and relax Canada. Pay these Harperites no mind as they cry and wine their way out the exit door.
