Canada now has a case of "sexting" by teens similar to many in the U.S.

The legal issues around teenage "sexting" on cell phones has appeared in Canada, as a teenage girl was convicted of possessing and distributing child pornography after she sexted certain pictures of a boyfriend's former girlfriend whom she saw as a rival.  In other words, she behaved like Theresa in "Days of our Lives". A publication called "The Province" in British Columbia has the details here.
 
But there is controversy in Canada, just as in the US, as to whether child pornography chargers are really appropriate in the case, despite the letter of the law, which seems similar to US law.
