Last year Ontario Premier Doug Ford admitted that over 5,000 convicted sexual predators lived within the GTA, and one National Post reporter calculated that based on those numbers, every child living in the GTA (General Toronto Area) was less than one mile away from a registered sexual offender.
Ontario taxpayers paid more than $2 million dollars to create a provincial registry of sexual predators, yet today parents have no access to review this directory, which Ford had promised to put online for public access BEFORE the last elections, but has abandoned the idea after the elections. Gee what a surprise eh?
As a result my wife and I have no idea if we have a convicted child molester living on our block or across from the local playground or within walking distance of our daughter's primary school. It could even be the convenient store clerk who sells her ice cream every week. How would we know?
Over the last year provincial and Ontario Law Society employees leaked information that many of these pedophiles, rapists, and molesters were professionals including 17 lawyers like those found at https://reddit.com/r/criminallawyers and that many never spent a day in jail even after news media reports said they were sentenced to "5 or 10 years". While free on bail pending their appeals, quiet sentence reductions were negotiated such as supervised probation, community service, $50,000 fines, and monthly visits to weekend "programs".
To add insult to injury, the Law Society will not only not disbar the convicted criminals, but refuse to warn or disclose to any prospective client that their new lawyer is a convicted criminal. In fact, anyone who inquires about Atty. X will be told the same thing than if they inquired about the Chief Justice... "Atty. X is a member in good standing with the Ontario Law Society" https://canlaw.com/law-society/pedophile-davidovic.html. One of these child abusing lawyers is/was the official legal counsel for the Peel Regional Police Department. His official status at this moment is unknown but was last discussed at https://forum.legaljunkies.com/forum/attorneys-courts-litigation/attorne...
As you can see, great efforts are being made to protect the criminal from the public and not vice versa. Visit https://reddit.com/r/TheOntarioLawSociety for a dose of reality. It is not just lawyers friends, there are accountants, florists, and even school teachers that are registered sex offenders out there totally unsupervised once they go five years from conviction without any new problems "detected". Forget the grubby, greasy, stereotype of what you envision a pedophile to be. Your next taxi driver or school bus driver could be one. You just won't know until another child disappears.
The whole idea of the sexual predator registry was so none of us would ever have to guess who poses the greatest danger and threat to our kids and where. But now, Doug Ford will not allow parents access to that database, without a single explanation. Must we hire hackers to protect our families? WTF?
Some other parent and I did our own investigation and found a reddit moderator with a conscience who admitted that he and another colleague were taking $5,000 bribes from a Ford intermediary to keep these dirty secrets off of Reddit, which has over 10 million Canadian visitors every day. Below is just one of the latest reddit posts that was censored today:
At least 11 other similar other posts were deleted over the last nine months. I won't say how we caught this clever editor because we are still on the hunt for others. I have no doubt that dozens of these reddit moderators are on the take.
In summary, all the sneaky censorship will not change the reality that young women and children who live in the beautiful middle-class suburbs of Mississauga, Brampton, and Etobicoke are rolling the dice with every night out or trip to the local playground. GTA parents need to be more diligent than ever, and make sure Doug Ford is never again elected to any public office.
