ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Newfoundland and Labrador will target so-called revenge porn with new legislation to crack down on those who share intimate images without consent.

Justice Minister Andrew Parsons says it's a move to deter harassment that can be especially devastating and humiliating.

He says legislation to be introduced by this fall will allow victims to sue in civil court and legally force the removal of images from the internet.

He says the Criminal Code was updated in 2015 to outlaw distribution of intimate images without consent, but civil law has lagged.

The new legislation would also allow judges to award damages so that offenders would literally pay for their actions.

Parsons says Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta and Nova Scotia have so far taken similar action.

The last thing Brittany Roque expected to learn as she applied for a job with the Brandon Police Service was that the force had received intimate images of the young police cadet. Roque is now suing a woman she alleges distributed the photos in what is one of the first "revenge porn" cases to test new legislation in Manitoba."I think people need to understand that this is unacceptable behaviour. There is a law put in place, and the police are put there to protect victims," said Roque, who lives in Brandon and is now a police officer in Rivers, Man.
