Canadian Legislation on Child Pornography

Discussion of Canadian Legislation regarding child pornography on the internet, the effectivness of those laws ,and the enforceability of those laws.

This paper addresses this question in terms of both Canadian laws governing child pornography on the Internet, and the role of these laws in terms of wider international legislation and norms in this area. It will be argued that the key problem related to Canadian child pornography legislation and the Internet is not so much a need for stronger laws, but rather the enforcement of those that currently exist.
