The Supreme Court of Canada has upheld the conviction of an Edmonton man who lured a 13-year-old boy on the internet for sex.
I dont think Canada is a good example because they are a bit too neurotic over there. If I remember well
, they forbade adults from speaking with children over the internet. I think thats too big an sacrifice for too little gain in security.
Not that I oppose the man's conviction. I just think thing's have gotten absurd on Canada.
you remember poorly, no such law or even suggestion was made, the basis of the ruling was that you can't use ignorance as an excuse, the 13 year old said many times that he was thirteen (even though his profile apparently said 18), and the adult ignored this information and kept pressing his agenda
i (a canadian) spent many years on gaming boards with teens (i was in my late 30's through early 40's), i was always upfront about my age and had no problems even when discussing non gaming topics, there were times i took my self out of conversations that were questionable
given the age difference, only once did a poster (a girl) think it was creepy that a "grown up dude" was hanging out with them, we conversed a bit but i respected her feelings and limited my interactions with her
