News release

The RCMP Provincial Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit has charged a Windsor man for child pornography offences.

In January 2023, the RCMP Provincial ICE Unit received information that child pornography was being shared on a social media application.

On February 16, 2023, the ICE Unit executed a search warrant at a home in Windsor. Investigators were assisted by West Hants District RCMP and RCMP Digital Forensic Services.

Randall Boutilier, 64, was safely arrested at the home. Boutilier has been charged with Possession of Child Pornography (2 counts), Transmitting Child Pornography, Making Arrangement to Commit a Sexual Offence Against Child, Making Sexually Explicit Material Available to Child. Boutilier was released on a number of conditions including that he not enter playgrounds, daycares, schools, swimming pools or anywhere where a person under the age of 18 years is present or expected to be present. Boutilier will appear in Windsor Provincial Court on April 4, 2023 at 9:30 a.m.

In Nova Scotia it is mandatory for citizens to report suspected child pornography. This means that anyone who encounters child pornography material or recordings must report it to the police. Failing to report suspicious activity and materials could result in penalties similar to failure to report child abuse set out in the Child and Family Services Act. The RCMP encourages citizens to be a voice for children who are victims of sexual exploitation by reporting any suspected offences to your local police or by using Canada's National tipline for reporting online sexual exploitation of children at
