Different Viewpoints Expressed At Anti-Sex Offender Rally

Pouring rain didn't stop another rally against sex offenders being released into the city from going ahead in King Square.

While many of the marchers were calling for a sex offender registry in the province, others weren't so sure about that idea . Elsie McGraw runs a group for survivors of childhood sexual abuse, and she tells CHSJ News she's afraid posting people's pictures in a registry could lead to vigilantism--and even confusion if someone resembles a known sex offender.

McGraw says for her the most important thing is to make people aware of the signs that an adult is abusing children.
