Senator Julie Miville-Dechêne has introduced Bill S-203 in the Senate Protecting Young Persons from Exposure to Pornography Act. You can read it here.
The purpose of this Act is to protect public health and public safety and, in particular, to
- Protect the mental health of young persons by restricting their access to sexually explicit material;
- Protect Canadians – in particular, young persons and women – from the harmful effects of the exposure of young persons to sexually explicit material, including demeaning material and material depicting sexual violence; and
- Deter anyone who makes sexually explicit material available on the Internet for commercial purposes from allowing young persons to access that material.
