Canada Oks Child Porn!

Apparently child porn is Ok in Canada, as long as it's "soft core".

Ottawa man James Taylor will only serve a conditional sentence after being convicted of running a child porn website because the judge in the case says the photos weren't 'hard-core.' (full story here)

Justice Hugh Fraser admits offenders typically receive jail time but the photos in question were at the "lower end of the scale.''

Hmmm...I guess it's OK then. It wasn't "bad" child porn. I suppose I was just unenlightened in thinking ALL child porn was bad!

Bet Michael Jackson is kicking himself for not building the Neverland Ranch in Canada...

There's that elusive, goal-post shifted "scale" again. Give it 20 years and paedophilia will be politically acceptable... as long as the five year old gives consent.

It's really not that unfeasible.
Makes you want to lock up your kids.

Hey Canadi-anna, thats a good idea! We should put our kids in prison, because thats the only place there is no pedophiles in Canada!

I'd like to know what the "distribution site" consisted of. That may explain the conditional sentence.

I am with Also on this one.

There is no grey area here. Hard core child porn or soft core child porn, it is ALL child porn.

Period.
