Ottawa man charged with child pornography offences
(Ottawa) – In late September 2017 a member of the Ottawa Police Service Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE) was conducting a proactive investigation on a Peer to Peer (P2P) network. P2P is a commonly used file sharing network for users to share files, including images and videos, of Child Pornography.
