Act now on study of pornography's impact

Updated Jan 26, 2017

The public health effects of violent and degrading sexually explicit material online will be studied by the parliamentary health committee in the next few months. This study must be completed and a report made to Parliament by July 2017. 

This committee will soon meet to decide how much time they will give to the study and which witnesses they will call. Write to your MP and ask them to encourage their colleagues on the committee to give this critical issue the thorough study it deserves. See the EFC’s sample letter.

This study was initiated as a result of motion M-47 introduced by MP Arnold Viersen. M-47 commits the Standing Committee on Health to study the public health effects of online violent and degrading sexually explicit material. M-47 was passed in December 2016.
