Cliff Ford, Toronto dad, posed as preteen daughter to bust online predator


When Live Action started to release videos of their undercover operations inside PP clinics, some Catholics said that Live Action had engaged in sinful behaviour when the people they sent were lying about the reason why they were at PP.

Is this really any different?


Did the creep he was responding to have the right or authority to know who he was? My opinion is no and that the father did nothing immoral. He frankly acted in a more moral manner than I probably would have by going to the police instead of the creep’s house.
