Kathleen Wynne’s Minister Of Child Porn Ben Levin was proverbial wolf in sheep’s clothing

TORONTO – By day, Ben Levin was the esteemed educator, tenured U of T professor, former Ontario deputy education minister, the expert who had the ear of premiers and leaders the world over.

And in his off hours? He liked to frequent an online incest chat room to counsel single moms on how to sexually assault their daughters for his pleasure and theirs, a site where his profile listed his sexuality as “nothing is taboo.”

How frightening to think this was the man who had so much influence on education in this province and beyond. A look at his Facebook page shows that he was speaking at conferences and workshops around the globe before his July 2013 arrest. And all the while, he was going back to his hotel room and logging on to the “M” website — its real name concealed due to ongoing investigations — where he shared, created and discussed the sexual abuse of the very children he sought to educate.

    Good coverage by SunNews, the only media truly interested in this sordid case.

    We have discussed how CBC News and CTV News has sanitized the notorious Ben Levin case, putting out very-short web page articles, buried in the “Toronto” section of their respective web pages.

    CTV News is only slightly more honest. They did post a web page article with decent coverage, reviewing the rather nasty details of the charges:

    and this piece covers the controversy at Queen’s Park, over Levin being a Deputy Minister:

    but, again, all of the coverage was relegated to the “local” beat. Nothing made it to the national news.

      To be expected.

      From your first CTV link, who cares what his fantasies or beliefs may be, it’s his actions and what activity he engaged in online or his private life. His professional work for ON education should be questioned also if the Min. of Ed. is now basing their new sex ed program on Levin’s original work in that field. The last thing gov’t or law enforcement should do is trust the “expertise” or recommendations from a convicted paedophile. The article mentions Levin stated online to an undercover agent that he thought or hoped his granddaughters would be shared with him and his wife. What a sicko, but is he implicating his wife also with that statement and should that now be questioned in that was she aware or did she agree with his activities. It’s very repulsive that his lawyer, media and former professional and govt contacts are trying to omit so much information and indirectly protect this guy. It is known fact that the recidivism rate for paedophiles is way over 90%. That’s why there is the sex offenders registry in the first place. le

        That’s right. That’s why I am putting in a complaint to the CBC Ombudsman on this (against CBC News) and the Ontario Press Council (against the Globe and Mail).

        I have never filed a complaint against an Ontario newspaper, through the OPC, but one does it here:
        http://ontpress.com/file-a-complaint/

        But the Globe and Mail is becoming so over-the-top corrupt, in the way they cover things against their crony pals (e.g., Premier Wynne) this is becoming bizarre, or grotesque. The big corporate media are protecting Ben Levin, and this is becoming so corrupt, it’s laughable.

    “…sought to educate…”?

    Shouldn’t that be “…sought to groom…”?

    Don’t worry he can always join James Kincaid on the speakers tour to teach teachers how to provide sex education to kids with his new found status he copped a plea to.

    You have to wonder about the details of the charges that were dropped in his plea agreement. I wonder what didn’t he want to get out in contrast to what he was willing to admit to, since it seems we only found out about the 3 out of 7 charges he admitted to. What was the evidence on those other 4 charges?

      His mistake was that he didn’t get Wynne to wipe his hard Drive clean or get the Police a 8.55% raise , plus he should have fled to Boston like McGuilty did to wait for the story to blow over.
      His sin as a Liberal was that he got caught before he could destroy documents and any proof.
      No big shock that Toronto is a pedophile/ kiddie porn capital of North America and that Wynne refuses to enforce the Federal laws that protect children when the PRIDE parade had the frontal nudity in public while children are around.
      Shame on the Police the used to get paid to protect children, now they provide security to perv’s to expose them self at kids.

      So much for the Police claiming they need more money to do their job when they seem to have lots of cars and Officers to be in PRIDE.

    The more I read about such cases & the present situation of the west in general the more I wish I would be living in 19th century, where such people face the real & swift justice.

    So he plead guilty to three charges – what were the charges that were withdrawn based on his plea to the three? Who wrote letters of support for this creep to be read in court? Was or is his wife being investigated?
