TORONTO, January 22, 2002 (LSN.ca) – Since January 1, Toronto police have found about a half a million pornographic pictures of children, some as young as six months old. Three people have been arrested and 200 others have been identified as having distributed child pornography.

“These are individual children and there’s well over 10,000 that we can tell are different children,” said Staff Inspector Gary Ellis of Toronto’s sexual assault squad. He told the National Post that some of the images showed children “being tortured in the most unimaginable ways.” Toronto Police Chief Julian Fantino pledged to stop the sickening practice. “If we can’t protect our children, then we should, as a society, fly the white flag of surrender because all is lost,” he said.

In the latest case involving a seizure of 200,000 photos and movies which took place Friday, Blair Evans, 51, a former Department of National Defence physicist was apprehended. Evans was sentenced to eight months in prison in 1999 for possessing and distributing more than 6,000 pictures of children performing sexual acts.
