Canada needs to better protect its children from foreign pedophiles.
That's according to an international report released last week, which suggests the country is becoming a destination for child sex tourism.
Portage-Lisgar MP Brian Pallister is disappointed by the findings and says the age of sexual consent needs to be raised to 16. He thinks there should also be more serious penalties for sexual predators.
The Global Monitoring Report on the Status of Action against the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children is consistent with Pallister in highlighting the low age sexual consent as a problem.
Pallister says bill C-22 will be a priority during the next session -- it passed second reading in October.
