Marketwire University of Calgary February 28, 2013 - 02:02:58 PM A statement from Elizabeth Cannon, President of the University of Calgary, concerning remarks made by Tom Flanagan CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2013) - Comments made by Tom Flanagan in Lethbridge yesterday absolutely do not represent the views of the University of Calgary . In the university's view, child pornography is not a victimless crime. All aspects of this horrific crime involve the exploitation of children. Viewing pictures serves to create more demand for these terrible images, which leads to further exploitation of defenseless children. Tom Flanagan has been on a research and scholarship leave from the University of Calgary since January of 2013. Looking for a U of C expert for a story?
