Chilliwack RCMP dismisses claim some local school library publications contained child pornography
An RCMP investigator with years of experience in investigating child pornography has rejected a claim that some books in Chilliwack school libraries breached the Criminal Code of Canada.
According to Chilliwack RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Krista Vrolyk, last Friday the detachment received a report alleging “written publications within School District 33 school libraries contained child pornography.”
Vrolyk said a highly experienced investigator reviewed the publications containing the material that was of most concern to the complainant and determined it did not meet the definition of child pornography as described by the Criminal Code of Canada.
“This is a serious allegation and one that caused many parents great concern in our community,” Vrolyk said.
“Police have a duty to investigate these allegations but it became clear to the investigator who has years of experience in investigating child pornography offences, that, while the material may be deemed inappropriate or concerning to some people, it does not constitute child pornography.”
