ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plans to raise the age of sexual content to 16 from 14. This was on again after the Conservative government announced a "Tackling Violent Crime" omnibus bill in its Throne Speech on October 16, 2007. Bill C-22 died on the order paper when Prime Minister Stephen Harper prorogued Parliament in September 2007. Meanwhile, David Rayside, a political science professor, says that the opposition parties are less likely to stop the legislation.
