JOHN SHARPE WHO WILL FACE SUPREME COURT OVER CHILD PORNOGRAPHY.
FILE PHOTO JUN99 - A highly political struggle over whether to allow the possession of child pornography will hit Canada's highest court this week, a classic clash pitting privacy and freedom of expression against the protection of children. The accused, retired federal bureaucrat from Vancouver, John Sharpe, said the law was Orwellian thought control. But defenders of the law said it was needed to protect children and to deny pedophiles the fodder to abuse kids. Sharpe is shown in this file photo outside BC Supreme Court in June 1999.
