OTTAWA, Ontario, June 22, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) MP Shannon Stubbs has called upon Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to take action against the Canada-based pornographic website Pornhub, which has allowed rape videos of children to be posted on its site.

“Prime Minister and various ministers said they were also horrified and promised action. But as of right now, the brutal reality is this: There is no new legislation, no new policies, no new regulatory mechanism, no new resources, no new measures for law enforcement to apply the current laws,” said Stubbs, who serves as the CPC shadow minister for public safety, last week at a press conference.

Stubbs led the way on a recent House of Commons’ Ethics Committee report which called on Trudeau’s government to crack down on Pornhub.

Last week, a report said the Ethics Committee recommended that Pornhub be held liable for not preventing explicit material of child sex abuse from being uploaded to its platform.

Stubbs said that Trudeau’s recent words saying he was “horrified” about what has happened to minors has not been followed up by “urgent action.”

“That is not too much for Canadians to ask or expect. And it’s already woefully and shamefully too late for so many victims,” said Stubbs.

Pornhub is owned by Montreal-based MindGeek and is the most viewed pornography website in the world. It has come under fire in recent months after reports surfaced that it has repeatedly allowed pornographic videos involving minors to be uploaded to its site.

A December 2020 New York Times report — titled “The Children of Pornhub: Why does Canada allow this company to profit off videos of exploitation and assault?” — gained international attention for its analysis of Pornhub’s allowance of illegal content involving minors to be uploaded to its site.

On Thursday, Stubbs recalled how she was “blown away” by the “resilience and courage” of the victims’ testimony, but was “horrified” that “the harmful, heartless, and demeaning treatment they endured” has come with no “consequences, and at the evasion of executives.”

“Now it is up to this government to look in the mirror and act,” said Stubbs.

As for MindGeek, company CEO Feras Antoon told the committee earlier in the year that sexually explicit material involving minors against their will has “no place on our platform, and it’s contrary to our values and our business model.”

Despite this, a $600 million lawsuit, filed in the Superior Court of Québec in December, but only recently reported, claims the site did host child pornography.

In addition to the Canadian lawsuit, there is an $80 million California lawsuit recently filed by 40 women from around the world that claims MindGeek aided a global trade of sexually exploitative photos of underage girls.

In the latest in a series of official endorsements by the GOP, the Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel recently issued a statement promoting so-called "pride" month and the agenda of the LGBT movement.

By forcing the LGBT agenda on the party faithful and would-be Republican voters, the RNC is seriously disrespecting their mostly conservative and Christian values.

Please SIGN this urgent petition to the RNC telling them to stop promoting the normalization of homosexual and transgender lifestyles, and the sexualization of politics in the United States.

Ever since Romney McDaniel took over as the head of the RNC in 2017, the leadership of the party has been tying itself, ever-more-closely, to this socially, morally and politically corrupt agenda, much to the dismay of the party faithful.

This is a colossal mistake for the party and society for three reasons:

  1. Attempting to normalize a lifestyle which is objectively disordered, is wrong and deceptive. The natural family and marriage between one man and one woman should be supported, not practices which have a decidedly destructive effect on individuals and society.
  2. If the party gives in to the LGBT agenda now, LGBT activists will never be satisfied. They will force the GOP to push more and more aberrant views, practices, policy and laws. That will be unhealthy for society and, ultimately, bad for the party, as people, who would otherwise support the party, will be driven away by pandering to this agenda which is based on personal, rather than societal, issues.
  3. By spending time and resources trying to court the LGBT community, which makes up 1-2% of the voting population, the GOP is losing opportunities to gain the support of much larger constituencies in the country, like Hispanic and Black voters, who make up 26%+ of the vote. Recent elections prove that Hispanics and Blacks can be won over to the party on economic policy and other substantive issues, rather than on identity politics.

Of course, people with homosexual inclinations must be respected, but the normalization of homosexuality (and, other sexually-confused inclinations) in society must be rejected.

Ultimately, the Republican Party should stand for the common good, not just the good of the individual based on sexual practices which do not actually benefit society. Otherwise, they will become indistinguishable from the other major party.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which tells the GOP to stop promoting the harmful LGBT agenda and the so-called 'pride' events which endanger the innocence and morals of everyone involved.

Thank you!

In a recent interview with Jonathon Van Maren, CPC MP Arnold Viersen said that “85 percent of 15- to 35-year-old males are viewing pornography on a weekly basis,” noting in particular that Canada has some of the highest viewership’s of digital pornography in the world.

Viersen is part of an All Party Parliamentary Group to End Modern Slavery, and he told Van Maren that the goal of the group is to stop Canada from being the “headquarters of the largest porn company in the world.”

A petition which calls upon Pornhub to be shuttered for “allegedly enabling and profiting from the sex trafficking and rape of women and children” currently has over 2 million signatures.
