Help me create awareness about kids access to hardcore porn

I am looking for signatures for getting age verification for porn sites after learning from my 12 year old daughter that boys AND girls in her class actually watch hardcore porn on their smartphones. ...Yes, during class.

Why are they allowed to use their smartphones in class?  

I don't think they should be allowed in school at all.  If they need one, to & from, the school could provide safe storage for them while school is in session.

The rules are not properly enforced. This is why I am trying to create awareness. Could you kindly show your support with a simple signature on the petition? :)

Whatever. Send them to a better school. How the heck do they have time to watch anything in class?

Im not sure which school that would be. We live in a "good" neighbourhood and the school has 2nd highest rating in the region. Beats me. Talking to the school on Monday

Unless Canada has some kind of censors on what internet sites can be accessed this is a lot more complicated than it appears. If the website is set up and run from another country not much to be done about it.

Very true but it can make it harder to access for kids.

Unless the site is Canadian any laws about age verifications are going to do nothing to limit access. This is on the school to set limits on their internet and the parents to set parental controls on their own.

Hopefully I can help to spread some awareness to the teachers and other parents
