Canada May Raise Age Of Sexual Consent

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: The Black Kettle)

(Life Site News) Canadian Members of Parliament will vote on a motion next week that seeks to raise the age of consensual sex. The motion, M-221, introduced in March by British Columbia Conservative MP Nina Grewal, seeks to amend the Criminal Code to change the age of consent from 14 to 16.

Many Liberal, Bloc Quebecois and NDP MPs have already said they would oppose the motion although the Tories are hopeful many Liberals will support the measure. The Liberal government has instructed its Members to vote against the motion as they say it denies youth the right to engage in sexual activity should they choose to do so.

This is a good measure for Canada, as the current law has given the "great white north" a reputation as one of the premier hot spots for sexual predators (especially American pedophiles). Fourteen year olds lack many of the basic privileges of their seniors, such as the ability to legally drive, vote, marry, as well as smoke (Editor's note: is smoking a privilege if it kills you?) and permitting them this privilege seems to fly in the face of practical reason.

But the bill is getting resistance from a community which has influence amongst the liberal parties which raises questions as to why they are resisting a bill that can protect children from being exploited by adults.

(Life Site News) Gwen Landolt of REAL Women of Canada told LifeSiteNews.com the strongest opposition to the bill is coming from the homosexual community which is very influential in the Liberal, Bloc and NDP parties...

A poll conducted in 2002 found that 80% of Canadians believe that the federal government should raise the age of sexual consent from 14 years to at least 16. "We need to act now, before more innocent lives are ruined," [British Columbia Conservative MP Nina] Grewal concluded.

Apparently it seems as if some Canadians are more concerned with keeping their "options open" rather than guarding the next generation from exploitation by perverted minds. According to the article, Canada already has a lousy conviction rate for people caught within the child porn industry, frustrating American law enforcement officers trying to prosecute offenders.

If America's northern neighbor is unwilling to protect their own children from potential misuse, then there will be nothing great about visiting the Great white North as "Chester" may find it a convenient place to "rob the cradle."
