Ontario Liberals have a long history of protecting child preditors and this may be why!

Benjamin LevinTORONTO – A former Ontario deputy education minister, who was also on Premier Kathleen Wynne’s transition team, has been charged with child pornography offences.
Benjamin Levin, 61, of Toronto, is facing five charges, including two counts of distributing child pornography and one count of making child pornography.
Levin, who was a member of Premier Kathleen Wynne’s transition team and is also a professor at the University of Toronto, was arrested Monday after police executed a search warrant at his home.
He’s also charged with counselling to commit an indictable offence and arrangement of a sexual offence against a child under 16.
The premier’s office has confirmed Levin served on Wynne’s transition advisory team but won’t comment on the charges.
Wynne’s office says the transition team last met June 12 when she thanked Levin and the other members for their work on the campaign that saw her selected to replace outgoing premier Dalton McGuinty.
Levin served under McGuinty as deputy minister of education from late 2004 to early 2007.
He also served as Manitoba’s deputy minister of advanced education and deputy minister of education, training and youth between 1999 and 2002.
Toronto police say their online child exploitation investigation was assisted by police in London, Ont., and the Department of Internal Affairs in New Zealand.
According to Levin’s resume, he had given numerous presentations and seminars in New Zealand.
