The Legal Age of Consent

Did you know that the legal age of consent in Canada is 14 years old?
This means that anyone can have sex with a child of 14 as long as that child will say that they consented to having sex.
I think it's time that we change this. The US has a legal age of 16, even 18 in some places.
I am totally open to the fact that at 14 or 15 maybe kids are experimenting, not the best idea but understandable. But 14 years old and anyone above 17 is just not sitting well with me personally.

A petition was created by the Children of the Street Society which can be downloaded at the link, take the petition out to your friends and family, I am sure it won't take long to fill up, then mail the completed petitions to:
Children of the Street Society
