OPPA Applauds Province For Establishing First Provincial Sex Offender Registry In Canada.


April 6, 2001

Barrie, Ontario - The Ontario Provincial Police Association (OPPA) today thanked Premier Mike Harris, Solicitor General David Turnbull, former Solicitor General David Tsubouchi, now Chair of Management Board, and their government for demonstrating vision and leadership in establishing Canada's first provincial Sex Offender Registry.

"The OPPA applauds this government's commitment to the fight against crime, particularly crime which affects vulnerable members of our society," said OPPA President Brian Adkin. "The Registry is an important tool for police and will play a vital role in tracking sex offenders and preventing them from re-offending."

Christopher's Law (Sex Offender Registry 2000) will come into force April 23, 2001. The law was named in memory of 11-year-old Christopher Stephenson who was brutally murdered in 1988 by a convicted pedophile on federal statutory release. The inquest jury into Christopher's death recommended the creation of a national registry.
