At least two lawsuits against the Boy Scouts of Canada over a scout leader who molested dozens of boys in northern Ontario and Manitoba First Nations communities have been quietly settled out of court, CBC News has learned.

PedophiliaU.S. authorities say their online portrayal of Ontario as a haven for child-sex tourism helped them catch four predators.

The controversial website set up by the Department of Homeland Security was for the bogus firm Precious Treasure Holiday Co., which promised to arrange illegal encounters in Ontario for pedophiles.

| at 06:36 am

MONTREAL – A judge is to decide next month whether a 72-year-old man should serve a lengthy prison term for his enormous collection of child pornography – uncovered in an investigation that also revealed he sexually abused a 3-year-old girl.

Prosecutor Rachelle Pitre argued at the Montreal courthouse Wednesday that an eight-year prison sentence is appropriate in Gabriel Cantin’s case, despite his age, because he still tries to minimize the impact of his crimes and refuses to address his apparent obsession with child pornography.

child When Kienan Hebert’s father condemned the criminal justice system for letting a known sex offender roam the streets, he was speaking for the children who were not as lucky as his son.

When notorious Toronto pedophile Peter Whitmore’s reign of abuse came to its end in 2008 after the kidnapping and rape of two young boys in Saskatchewan (one from Manitoba), his lawyer, Daniel Brodsky, wrote Prime Minister Stephen Harper calling for a public inquiry into the lax tracking of high-risk offenders.

The castration bill, designed to “increase the effectiveness of the prevention of the strikingly brutal crimes” against children, also introduces life sentence as a possible punishment for pedophiles who are repeat offenders.

The bill also stipulates voluntary medical treatment, including chemical castration, for other rapists.

Medvedev, who first proposed the introduction of chemical castration for pedophiles in May, said punishment for such criminals should be “as harsh as possible.” “A liberal approach here is totally unacceptable,” he said. (more…)
