The House of Commons’ Ethics Committee has tabled a report, calling on the Trudeau government to take action against Porn Hub who allegedly monetized videos of rape, child sexual abuse material, and other misogynistic content.

Shannon Stubbs, the Conservative Shadow Minister for Public Safety, led the way on this report, which was commissioned following a shocking New York Times article that went viral across the English-speaking world. It alerted readers to violations of individual consent and privacy over their own sexually explicit and illicit images and video.

In a press conference on Thursday, Stubbs said that, the “Prime Minister and various Ministers said they were also horrified and promised action. But as of right now, the brutal reality is this: there is no new legislation, no new policies, no new regulatory mechanism, no new resources, no new measures for law enforcement to apply the current laws.”

“Urgent action should have followed on those words,” she added. “That is not too much for Canadians to ask or expect. And it’s already woefully and shamefully too late for so many victims.”

Following the publication of the New York Times article, more than 2 million people across the globe signed a petition calling for PornHub to be shut down Pornhub, which has been called the third most socially impactful company of the 21st century, and is the 10th most visited website in the world.

Following this, and the aforementioned article, major credit card companies suspended the use of their cards on the site, forcing Pornhub to remove 9 million pieces of content, which is more than three-quarters of the material on their website.

Speaking about the testimony the Ethics Committee heard, Stubbs stated that “personally, during the Ethics Committee investigation, while blown away at their resilience and courage, I was also horrified by the testimony of victims about the harmful, heartless, and demeaning treatment they endured, about the senselessness of clear violations of existing laws with no consequences, and at the evasion of executives.”

“Now it is up to this government to look in the mirror and act,” she concluded.
