Ramsay: We heard what to me amounted to really shocking testimony from our previous witness this morning, that in some communities incest is almost an acceptable norm. I feel that when someone touches part of another person's body without consent, that is abuse. If clause 20 1 k allows us to order the detention of an individual in a closed environment for seven years, the same period should be provided for in a hospital environment.
A number of characteristics were examined - in particular age at first offence, abuse history, socio-economic status, education, substance abuse and degree of violence used. However, it's a heavy burden to bear because you have to open two case files and get two different systems involved.
We are not there for that. This also enables the community to demystify somewhat delinquency, what happens to young people, the Young Offenders Act, and also to have a more realistic view of the measures which can be taken in the case of young people.
Everyone knows at what time they occur, but patrol cars are virtually nonexistent in those places. St-Laurent Manicouagan : Thank you. A number of characteristics were examined - in particular age at first offence, abuse history, socio-economic status, education, substance abuse and degree of violence used.
If you were to give me the name of an offender, if I didn't work in the field of sexual offences, in four days I will certainly have forgotten it, if there are ten others in the newspaper.
As pointed out by journalist Anna Dornnot only is court sentencing much more lenient for female pedophiles, but attractive female sex offenders find the courts more merciful than their less attractive peers. Similar to the third offender, the fourth offender in this group was very much in control of her choice to sexually offend.

St-Laurent Manicouagan : Thank you. In order to intervene, the crisis has to be a major one. As for specific representations concerning the legislation, I think it's essential for you to re-introduce a detention in a hospital environment not only for a short period but also for a period adjusted to those periods provided for in the Young Offenders Act.
Ramsay: In your testimony in the area of sexual abuse, you have indicated that incest is almost normal in some communities. Serge Charbonneau, our association coordinator and Mr. Dupuy was there.
