“Toronto police said on Thursday the arrest of 348 people, including 108 in Canada, 76 in the United States and 164 in other countries from Spain to Australia,┬ácame after a three-year investigation of a Toronto company that distributed child porn.

“‘Of concern to the investigators was the number of people (arrested) who have close contact with children. The arrests included 40 school teachers, nine doctors and nurses, 32 people who volunteered with children, six law enforcement personnel, nine pastors or priests, and three foster parents,’ Inspector Joanna Beaven-Desjardins, head of Toronto’s Sex Crimes Unit, told a news conference.”
