Quebec broadcaster shows porn to 13-year-olds, advisory claim says it’s ‘suitable’ content

DM

On Wednesday, a national regulator yesterday found a Montréal TV station broadcasting pornography to 13-year-olds. The National Broadcast Standards Council said while Quebecers have different viewing habits than the rest of the country, depicting sex acts as suitable viewing for Grade Six students went too far. “A Francophone market might tolerate more explicit sexual content than would an Anglophone market,” wrote the Council. However, the offending program was so “troublesome” it crossed the line, the panel concluded. “Nudity alone is not a determinative criterion,” wrote the Council. “The key issue is whether the sexual activity is obvious and demonstrative. The panel concludes that, even with the chosen camera angles, the sexual content is not only obvious but demonstrative. There is no doubt the couple is engaging in various sexual practices and conspicuously having sex.” CFJP TV of Montréal, a Bell Media digital channel, on February 22, broadcast an episode of the drama Mon ex à Moi depicting the lives and loves of young people in the province.
