Thank you, Mr. Chair.
My first question is in regard to some groups who have argued that in prohibiting advertising of sexual services, you are not allowing prostitutes the opportunity to screen their clients.
Could you comment on that concern?

I have an additional question. There has been some confusion over what would apply in the case of those under 18, but I understand that it would be the Youth Criminal Justice Act provisions that would hold forth here. Can you comment on those under the age of 18 and if the latter would be the superceding document? Would it be the Youth Criminal Justice Act that governs any interactions that involve someone under the age of 18?

Additionally, going back to the advertisement of sexual services, are there any studies that would complement that view, any evidence that the Department of Justice has found, for example, to show that in jurisdictions where prostitution has been completely legalized there has been an increase in human trafficking?

The link it that there's no model that can ever make prostitution a safe activity, but I thought it might be relevant to this committee to share some of the studies that have been done in jurisdictions where prostitution has been completely legalized.

Thank you.
I guess one of the challenges is how fast technology evolves. I think, based on what we've heard before this committee, it's fair to say cyberbullying is on the rise, unfortunately. When we think of some of the means whereby things can be communicated really quickly, we're talking about having Facebook and obviously Twitter, but talking to younger cousins or younger friends, one thing I learn is that there is always something new. It's incredible how widely they're used. I just looked up Snapchat, and it said 700 million photos and videos are distributed every day. The target audience is teenagers. Does this bill give you the tools to keep up with technology? Because what we're dealing with today could be just as difficult or even harder a few years from now. We know that app certainly has impressions, when you talk about concerns about the distribution of intimate images, obviously some of those users use tools like that. How do you keep pace with this evolving technology, and is this bill adequate to do that?

We're looking at the profile of the cyberbully, and I think there certainly are different impressions when you look at cyberbullying among youth. Could you maybe aid the committee and give us your profile of the average cyberbully, based on age and geography?

When you look at that one app, 700 million a day; it's phenomenal.
There's a comment from Halifax.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
My first question is for the Boys and Girls Club. One thing that I think we haven't spoken a lot about today, and that I thought you could provide insights into, involves the impacts of cyberbullying and how frequent it is.
I think Ms. Guthrie spoke about how increasingly frequent it's becoming, but I'm sure you see that in your clubs.
Perhaps you could speak to, one, how frequent it is, and give us insights from what you've observed; and two, the impacts it has on youth.

I have a follow-up question for Ms. Guthrie.
You mentioned that in the bill there were aspects toward cyberbullying that you really liked. Your concern was that there was too much in the bill, but I wanted you to highlight the parts you liked. I think it would be helpful to know the parts of the bill that you thought were very helpful.

Ms. Guthrie, I appreciate your perspectives on the judiciary and law enforcement, but I want to ask a follow-up question. Are you aware of the federal-provincial-territorial report that was released in July of 2013 calling for additional measures? In particular, it called for giving law enforcement better tools to deal with the gaps.
I'm wondering if you are aware of the report and if you support the recommendations that were made in that report.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I have a few questions. The first is in regard to restitution. I understand that the penalties outlined in Bill C-13 include restitution so that victims can recoup some of the expenses associated with having images removed from the Internet or social media sites. I wonder if you could expand upon that and what it means.
While you look into that, perhaps I could ask an additional question.
In June of 2013, the working group of the coordinating committee of senior officials on cybercrime published a report, “Cyberbullying and the Non-consensual Distribution of Intimate Images”. Can you comment generally on that report, who was involved, and what its main recommendations were as they relate to the bill?
