Manitobans could be the first Canadians to face jail time and fines for failing to report suspected cases of child pornography.
CBC News has learned the provincial government will introduce legislation Wednesday that will amend child abuse legislation, which already has a mandatory reporting law, to include child pornography.
Under the legislation, anyone caught not reporting suspected cases of child pornography could face up to two years behind bars or a maximum $50,000 fine the same penalty for those who fail to report child abuse.
Police outside Manitoba are applauding the move, including Toronto's police force, which is known worldwide for employing innovative methods of cracking down on sexual exploitation.
