“We are proposing measures to bring our laws into the 21st century and to provide the police with the lawful tools that they need,” Mr. Toews said to the MP for Lac-Saint-Louis, Quebec. “He can either stand with us or with the child pornographers.”

Mr. Toews’ remark prompted immediate condemnation from Green Party leader Elizabeth May and others:

Kady O’Malley

Elizabeth May MP
@ElizabethMay @kady It just keeps on getting worse. Whenever I think we’ve hit rock bottom, Toews gets out a shovel. #hw
