Sex Offenders Living In District

Some stark reality about where registered sex offenders live in Ontario.

The Ministry of Corrections has handed Global News that information after being ordered to do so by the Supreme Court.

Global has since created maps on its website showing the areas, by postal code only, where sex offenders registered in 2008.

In the Rainy River district, the data indicates there were 14 living within the area code POW, 20 in P9A, and 95 within POT, which also includes areas around the Thunder Bay and Upsala areas.

Unlike Minnesota, Ontario law enforcement is not required to inform the public when a sex offender moves into their community.
