by Richard Fung

The Toronto Star, June 24, 2004, p. 29

The author argues that: "Representation is not the same thing as reality, and while it will do little to protect real children from abuse, the move to further criminalize pictures and stories threatens to have enormous unintended consequences to culture and Canadian economy".
