On November 23, 2023 First Call sent a letter to all BC MPs and relevant federal cabinet ministers urging them to support Bill S-210, the Protecting Young Persons from Exposure to Pornography Act. This bill passed the Senate by acclamation in April 2023.
Online content that is violent, degrading, dehumanizing, and abusive is freely and easily accessible by children and young people, who are logging into or are inadvertently exposed to online pornography at an increasingly early age. A growing body of research clearly underscores that children’s exposure to this content contributes to multiple harms – impacting children’s mental, social, and physical health.
As noted in our letter, this bill is supported by many experts and organizations. Read our letter here.
