Kubassek protest attacks Internet porn

Recently, University of Waterloo Professor Jeffrey Shallit fought for the right that all manner of despicable pornography, including bondage and bestiality, be shown in the Internet.

We strongly protest the decision to show these outrageous immoral sexual acts on the Internet.

Further, we agree with new police Chief Julian Fantino when he says that Canada has failed to protect children. Child pornography, as well as other forms of pornography, including bondage and bestiality, harm children and society as a whole.

It's a terrible shame that a member of the faculty of the University of Waterloo would stoop to such lo levels of morality, thereby jeopardizing families. After all, it is known that much crime results because of porn.

In view of the fact that children and society need protection from the horrible results of pornography, we demand that Professor Shallit stop his immoral agenda or be removed from his post at the University of Waterloo.

Erika Kubassek,
Cambridge
