Background info

The ‘CanadaCreep’ Twitter account, which over the span of nearly one year had gone unnoticed and accumulated 17,000 followers, was shut down last week by Twitter.

The account posted unconsented and secrecely captured pictures and videos of Calgary women’s clothed breasts, butts, and genital areas – some including videos taken up women’s skirts while they walked.

Local Calgary bloggers Crackmacs posted a tip their Facebook page which blew up and caught the attention of many Calgarians and The Calgary Police.

New evidence

Over the weekend, police re-arrested Williamson and charged him with possession of child pornography and accessing child pornography.

During the police investigation, multiple electronic devices were seized and a search warrant was executed on a residence in the community of Prestwick, AB. This resulted in an additional seizure of computers, storage devices and other electronics.

Digging through multiple terabytes of data, investigators found evidence of child pornography.

Williamson will next appear in court on Monday, June 19, 2017.

Anyone who has identified themselves as a victim in any of the images posted online is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234.

Case #: 17243516/4856
