This section contains items on efforts to convince the Canadian federal government to bring in legislation to prohibit the "undue exploitation of violence", a phrase adapted from the current federal Criminal Code law on obscenity. More information on this can be found in the Action Agenda: A Strategic Blueprint for Reducing Exposure to Media Violence in Canada, in the Political Highlights section, and pertinent sections of the Criminal Code can be found under Legislative and Regulatory Highlights.
In the early 1990s, the federal government made a lot of noise on this issue; unfortunately, they never actually did anything. As a result, television violence escalated dramatically, and since there is no prohibition on violent products (without explicit sex), violence in music and video games exploded.
Sorry for the quality of some articles. They're from my archives.
