Levin sentencing hearing begins today

Brian LilleyArchive

The public will get an idea of how long a former top educational bureaucrat will spend behind bars after being convicted on child pornography charges as the sentencing hearing for Benjamin Levin gets underway in Toronto.

Levin, once the top educational bureaucrat in Ontario, formerly in Manitoba and an advisor to Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne fell from grace after his arrest in July 2013. Up until then Levin was influential in educational circles from his post at The University of Toronto.

Levin's arrest and admission of guilt has caused a great deal of controversy among parents concerned that this man played a role in developing Ontario's controversial sex-ed curriculum -- something supported by this exclusive TheRebel.media story on Levin.

But you wouldn't know it from much of the media coverage.

The Canadian Press issued a brief story, carried on several media websites, that played down Levin's actions and his one time hold on educational policy in Canada's biggest province.

Benjamin Levin pleaded guilty to three child pornography-related charges in a Toronto court last month.

The 63-year-old was originally charged with seven child porn related offences.

In a written statement distributed by his lawyer, Levin has said he’s “deeply ashamed”of his actions.

Over at The Toronto Sun, crime reporter Sam Pazzano laid out why Levin's case matters.

Levin, 63, used to be a globe-trotting expert who counselled premiers and educational leaders.

During his off hours, court heard, he frequented an online incest chatroom and counselled single moms on how to sexually assault their daughters — a site where his profile listed his sexuality as “nothing is taboo.”

Before his career-ending arrest in July 2013, Levin was speaking at conferences and workshops around the world.

Pazzano writes that when Levin would travel to speak at educational conferences around the world, he would spend his days telling top educrats how to reshape the educational system, then go back to his hotel room where he would visit websites dedicated to sexually abusing children.

Levin's lawyer Clayton Ruby has said his client's intention was simply to role play.

In one chat with an undercover police officer, Levin encouraged a woman he thought was a single mother to molest her own children, telling her he had done the same to his own daughters. While that claim was made at trial, no evidence that he actually molested his daughters was presented.

“|Levin’s lawyer Clayton Ruby has said his client’s intention was simply to role play.” If this is a true quote how can a judge allow such mitigated dishonesty. The whole truth… does not apply in court anymore.

No link can be formed to Harper, so there’s no story for the MSM, I’ll be surprised if he gets any time from this, just a slap on the wrist. Watch Duffy will get a harsher sentence, crazy world !

I find this trial more important than Duffy’s, how come the media is not all over it. Wait, it has to do something with the present and the past Ontario government, nothing negative ever is written about them in the main stream media.

Matthew 18:6 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”,
Mark 9:42 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea”,
Luke 17:2 “It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble”
That’s all seems pretty clear to me. I wouldn’t want to be in either Benjamin Levin’s shoes or Kathleen Wynne’s shoes when they stand before God, or anyone else who would advance this perverse hedonistic indoctrination of children. And one day they will stand before God, make no mistake about it. With all due respect to any of our atheist friends who may be reading this post, this sex ed agenda is pure satanic.

Joan introduced us to this: "See here the Crown Agreed Statement of Facts for Ben Levin: "
on page 6 of this is where I stopped reading…

The Education system’s determination to introduce all these non-essentials of sex education for pre-teen children is for ONE PURPOSE ALONE: NORMALIZING SICK SEX FOR THE NEXT GENERATION…Can you imagine the day when we will be ridiculed for thinking this kind of behaviour, as DESCRIBED in the above court documents against little children is disgusting? I can…and am glad I will likely not see that day…I wonder if Benjamin Levin will receive as severe a sentence as Duffy?…

NO WONDER THEY ARE SHINING SUCH A SPOTLIGHT ON DUFFYTHIS IS THE VERY REASON and it speaks of a cover up of sorts…they deserve serious punishment for attempting to deceive the public about this creature that has been given so much freedom …and others…one might be forgiven for wondering if they too want this hidden for personal reasons? Why is this so very UNIMPORTANT to the media?

Levin appeared in many photos and video with Wynne and Trudeau during the Toronto Gay Pride Parade. Now I want to make it perfectly clear that I am making no insinuations about Trudeau. However , had Levin not been charged and remained teaching as well as a confidant of Wynne, he could have been influentual in policy development at the national level . It is bad enough that the present wharped sex education policy in Ontario has his slimy fingers all over it. Imagine what he could have done at the national level.Regarding his sentencing, it should be harsh given the former standing he had in the community . A position of trust deserves the highest level of scrutiny and accountability and he deserves to have the book thrown at him.

So 1700 contacts, is this going to be another OPP cover-up for the Liberal gov’t…

Eileen – no doubt in my mind whatsoever.

Many people in Ontario are blind, deaf and mute! It is an example of “See no evil.”, “Hear no evil.”, “Speak no evil.”! And the worst amongst them are the so-called investigative journalists of the media party! Perhaps, many of these people are part of the 1700 people in contact with Levin on his website!

I think a 20 to 25 year sentence would be appropriate – no chance of parole – served entirely in PC (protective custody) segregation, or a 5 year term served in the general population…in fact I’d settle for a 5 month term served in general population!
After Levin’s sentencing is completed, it’s time to launch an extensive investigation into the rest of the pedophiles and other filthy degenerates infesting our country’s bureaucracies and political players! NO MERCY!

Kathleen Wynne has attempted to justify her new sex-ed curriculum by declaring that it was based upon “science” and that her government, “consulted with parents, teachers, students, medical professionals and curriculum experts about how to update this curriculum.” However, as Progressive Conservative MPP Monte McNaughton, pointed out “parents have been completely left out of this process.” Noteworthy, given Wynne’s emphasis that her curriculum was “based on science”, was her reference to “curriculum experts” as part of the ‘consultation’ process and presumably involved in the curriculum development. Who then would such “curriculum experts” be other than those trained as sex experts, sex educators, and sexologists. The next question to ask is who educates and trains those “curriculum experts”?
Former Ontario Education Minister John Snobelen in a Toronto Sun op-ed (March 13) described Ben Levin as “an all-star educator…with a Ph.D. from OISE.” Describing Ben Levin as “an all-star educator…with a Ph.D. from OISE" (the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education is not a source of comfort, but rather should set off alarm bells! For example in October 2013, Dr. James Kincaid, the invited keynote speaker, to a childhood ‘education’ conference, (“Bodies at Play, Sexuality, Children and Classroom Life”) sponsored by the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies under the auspices of the University of Toronto’s Ontario’s OISE, was someone known to be highly sympathetic to pedophiles. Part of OISE’s program of studies is “Sexual Diversity Studies” which is integrated across a multitude of disciplines, including law, criminology, English, philosophy, political science, religion, sociology, and psychology. Trace the pedigree of the so-called ‘sex experts” and ultimately you will find that the trail leads back to sexual pervert Alfred Kinsey!
According to Wikipedia, Ben Levin was “the academic director for Ontario’s new Knowledge Network for Applied Education Research (KNAER), funded by the Ministry of Education to improve the sharing of research findings and their use in policy and practice. The government of Ontario suspended him (July 2013) pending the outcome of an investigation”. “How Are Sexual and Gender Identities Represented in an Ontario Science Text?”, is an example of the kind of ‘studies’ carried out under the auspices of Ontario’s KNAER for which Levin served as its academic director until July 2013:
The summary of this ‘research’ indicates that “This study examined McGraw Hill Ryerson’s Biology 12 textbook for evidence of gender and sexuality bias. Analysis of the text revealed that heterosexuality was the only sexual identity represented and references to genders other than male and female were omitted”. Note that the influence of Kinsey’s philosophy is not limited to the sex-ed curriculum, but that efforts are underway to incorporate it into other subjects such science with the example of the biology textbook here. An example of how Ontario’s tax dollars are being put to work to support Kathleen Wynne’s social-engineering agenda!

I am nowhere near as concerned about words as I am about criminal acts, nowhere near as concerned about the sex-ed curriculum from which parents have the right to exempt their children as I am with the over 1,700 contacts Ben Levin had with parents on the sadistic child porn site when police caught him.

Make no mistake. Levin was not caught physically molesting anyone. But he coerced over 1,700 parents to agree to beat, shackle, ball gag and choke their children with a noose all for his sexual pleasure.

See here the Crown Agreed Statement of Facts for Ben Levin: http://www.blazingcatfur.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Ben-Levin-Statement-of-Facts.pdf

I think Levin pleaded guilty to protect other influential political figures in education and government careers from being exposed at a trial as fellow sadistic child pedophiles. I want to know who Levin’s over 1,700 contacts are and I want them prosecuted too. Otherwise, Levin becomes a martyred escape goat for all the other dangerous pedophiles still out there hunting our children.

I can exempt my child from sex-ed class. I can tell the teacher I am watching him/her and will take action against them if I even whiff pedophilia. But I can’t protect my kids from every unknown pedophile protected by police who won’t arrest them, protected by a system content with prosecuting only one of over 1,700 active sadistic pedophiles.

Pedophiles are coaches, pastors, police, lawyers, doctors, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters … the list is endless. Levin is not the only one.

And we will hear crickets in the main stream media, or rather we will hear about Duffy, Duffy, Duffy. And somewhere in a small column on page 6,417 bottom of the page in small print of Toronto “Red” Star will be a 3 or 4 sentence article on Ben Levin.

Team pedophile, headed by Wynne, loses a member. That’s a shame. Wynne is such a foul liberal pig.

I can’t even fathom how the people of Ontario, at least the one’s with school-aged kids, aren’t up in arms like psychos! My child would never ever learn the sex ed laid out by that pedophile. Never. He even trains other men how to groom children. WAKE UP PEOPLE OF ONTARIO!!! IT’S YOUR KIDS!!!!!

Soon to be gone…but not forgotten. His legacy lives on; in our schools. Ontario: old Mohawk word meaning “monument to dog-who-sniff-papoose”.
