B.C. police chiefs endorse CFUW recommendation

Exciting news has hit the streets regarding the BC Association of Chiefs of Police Resolution.

The CFUW Cranbrook Club has just received word from DCC Len Goerke that the Association has passed a resolution based on BC CFUW work and policy (Images of Child Sexual Abuse) at their recent meeting held in late February. CFUW recommends a change in language is required when it comes to the issue of ‘child pornography.’ The more appropriate terminology should instead be “images of child sexual abuse.”

This is just in time for the ‘Stop Sexual Exploitation of Children and Youth Awareness Week’ scheduled for March 11-17. Details of what is happening throughout B.C. can be found at

“We are very proud of our continuing work at the local, provincial, national and international levels in efforts to stop all abuses against children and women,” said Cathryn Henley, President of the CFUW Cranbrook Club. “This news from the RCMP may seem small, but it took years of work and effort to get to this point, and there is so much more to be done and is being done in our clubs across Canada,” she added.

The Cranbrook Club always welcomes new members and invites you to contact them through their website at
