Stricter travel rules and public database on the way
7 0

The Harper government is taking steps to crack down on sexual predators.
Justice Minister Peter MacKay says the government is tabling legislation to create a publicly accessible database of high-risk child sex offenders.

Among other things, he says the bill would make anyone convicted of child sex crimes against multiple children serve their sentences consecutively, not concurrently.

The legislation would also require registered sex offenders to provide more information when they travel abroad and permit more sharing of information between federal agencies.

It would also increase sentences for certain child sex offences as well as penalties for violation of conditions of supervision orders.
Testimony from a spouse would be available to prosecutors in child pornography cases.


The government promised in the October throne speech to get tougher on pedophiles.
