On Wednesday, it was revealed that 22 of the 23 people arrested across Ontario following a child sexual abuse material investigation had been released on bail.

The offenders face a combined ninety-six charges ranging from possession and access of child pornography to luring and sexual assault of minors.

In addition, 131 devices containing illicit material were seized, twenty-two victims were identified, and ten children were safeguarded.
