Prosecutors are appealing the sentence for the man at the heart of the Maple Leaf Gardens sex abuse scandal.

The Crown has filed a notice of appeal in the case of Gordon Stuckless, who was sentenced last month to 6.5 years in prison for sexually abusing 18 boys decades ago.

Stuckless, 67, was given credit of six months for time served under house arrest, which means he will spend six years behind bars.

Eighteen concerned parents from across the Durham region outside Toronto rallied from noon till 1:30 Tuesday at a busy intersection beside the Durham Region District School Board and Sinclair Secondary School to protest the Ontario government's new sex education curriculum. Among them was Christine Liu, president of the Parents Alliance of Ontario.

The parents carried colourful signs and handed out pamphlets about the controversial and pansexual curriculum, bearing the subtitle, "Social Engineering Goes to School: The Rape of Childhood and Why Parents Should be Concerned." Drivers responded with positive honking and stopped to pick up pamphlets. Pedestrians including high school students were supportive and stopped to talk.

College students' answers on gender and 'age' identity show just how lost we are http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/canadian-values/protect-our-children/2127-college-students-answers-on-gender-and-age-identity-show-just-how-lost-we-are http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/canadian-values/protect-our-children/2127-college-students-answers-on-gender-and-age-identity-show-just-how-lost-we-are

A new video from the Family Policy Institute of Washington shows just how disconnected from reality many college students are.

The video would be funny if it wasn't so sad. Family Policy Institute of Washington Director Joseph Backholm asked University of Washington students a series of questions about gender, race, age, and height identity. The students' consensus was largely if Backholm, who is quite obviously a white man, self-identifies as a Chinese woman, then he is a Chinese woman.


Similarly, the students agreed that if Backholm self-identifies as a seven-year-old, although it would be hard to believe at first, they would accept it.

Defence seeks five-year sentence for Maple Leaf Gardens pedophile http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/canadian-values/protect-our-children/2111-defence-seeks-five-year-sentence-for-maple-leaf-gardens-pedophile http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/canadian-values/protect-our-children/2111-defence-seeks-five-year-sentence-for-maple-leaf-gardens-pedophile

Relatives of one of Gordon Stuckless's victims are pushing for tougher laws against sexual abuse after the defence recommended a five-year sentence for crimes committed against 18 boys.

Gary Kruze says Stuckless should spend the rest of his life in prison for the harm he has inflicted on young boys over decades.

His brother Martin Kruze was one of the first to come out with allegations against Stuckless in the late 1990s, and one of 24 complainants in the resulting trial. Martin Kruze committed suicide shortly after the trial.

Pediatrician gets 18 months for sex assaults on two patients http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/canadian-values/protect-our-children/2099-pediatrician-gets-18-months-for-sex-assaults-on-two-patients http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/canadian-values/protect-our-children/2099-pediatrician-gets-18-months-for-sex-assaults-on-two-patients

An elderly pediatrician who sexually assaulted two young girls in separate attacks decades apart was sentenced Wednesday to 18 months in jail.

Dr. Arturo Sanchez, 81, "was in a position of trust" as the victims' doctor and his assaults "had a considerable impact," Judge Nancy Backhouse said.

"In the first victim's case, the assaults were persistent and lengthy, planned and deliberate," said Backhouse, who found him guilty last December of three charges involving two victims. One girl was assaulted in the mid-1960s and another was 11 years old in 1980 when he touched her breasts at her home while administering an allergy shot.

Ontario Education Minister Liz Sandals says the sex-ed curriculum is the solution to children as young as age six accessing explicit pornography while at school - a response that has pro-family advocates fuming and denouncing the minister as self-serving and deceitful.

The latest of an increasing number of reports of Ontario's children being exposed to sexual images on school computers or on their own devices while at school, an Ottawa couple told the media their six-year-old son saw a video of explicit lesbian sex on a school computer.

Sandals responded by telling reporters that the sex ed curriculum helps children deal with such images, according to National Post's Ashley Csanady.

Parents looking for a reason to monitor their child's online activities should know about Daniel Labutte.

On Monday, Labutte, 27, originally from Mississauga, pleaded guilty to three sex-related charges -- possession of child porn, transmitting sexually explicit materials to a minor and communicating with a minor for a sexual purpose.

At the centre of the case is a nine-year-old London girl who posted a profile on the dating site Plenty of Fish and ended up catching the attention of Labutte and his girlfriend. They began talking to the girl online, had sex in front of a web camera for the girl to watch and started a plan to go camping with her so they could have sex together.

To understand Bill Cosby, start with Alfred C. Kinsey http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/canadian-values/protect-our-children/1779-to-understand-bill-cosby-start-with-alfred-c-kinsey http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/canadian-values/protect-our-children/1779-to-understand-bill-cosby-start-with-alfred-c-kinsey

In a letter to the editor in the July 25 National Post regarding Bill Cosby's alleged sex crimes, Jerry Pryde, of Stoney Creek, Ont., wrote: "It should be noted one of Cosby's accusers claims the deed occurred at the Playboy mansion when she was 15. This raises the question: who allowed a 15-year old girl inside what amounts to little more than a high-end brothel?"

The answer to "who" let the girl into the "high-end brothel" called the Playboy mansion is, figuratively speaking, Hugh Hefner, chief missionary of Playboy magazine. But Mr. Pryde's question is a good one, because it opens the door to speculation on the influences that produced what cultural critic Mary Eberstadt termed "pedophilia chic" - the idea that sex between adults and underage teenagers, or even children, is a victimless crime.

Ottawa 'sexsomniac' not criminally responsible for sex assault on daughter because he was sleepwalking http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/canadian-values/protect-our-children/1400-ottawa-sexsomniac-not-criminally-responsible-for-sex-assault-on-daughter-because-he-was-sleepwalking http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/canadian-values/protect-our-children/1400-ottawa-sexsomniac-not-criminally-responsible-for-sex-assault-on-daughter-because-he-was-sleepwalking

An Ottawa man on trial for sexually assaulting his seven-year-old daughter was found not criminally responsible on Tuesday after a judge ruled he was in a state of automatism while sleepwalking.

Diagnosed with "sexsomnia," or sleep sex, the man was accused of crawling into bed with his young daughter in December, 2010, after his wife kicked him out of bed after a night of drinking. He then allegedly removed his daughter's underwear and held her down as he touched her. He allegedly pushed the Grade 3 student off the bed when she tried to fight him off.

Dr. Colin Shapiro, a sleep expert, testified at trial that the man was likely asleep when the assault took place, suffering from parasomnia, a type of sleep disorder that can include sleep eating, sleep walking and sleep sex, that he said can be triggered by alcohol consumption.
