Overview

In January 2001, the Supreme Court of Canada handed down its ruling on the Charter challenge brought to the "kiddie porn law" by Robin Sharpe’s case. Political and legal commentator Stan Persky and former senior justice department policy advisor John Dixon follow the course of Sharpe’s case through the courts from his arrest in 1995 to the verdict.
