Arnason fears children are reluctant to tell their parents about any unusual conversations for fear of losing the privilege of gaming.
That is why Ottawa lawyer Mark Hecht said video game companies should monitor online chats.
"If you have a sexual interest in children, you're going to find yourself in spaces where children hang out," said Arnason, whose group is operated by the Canadian Centre for Child Protection.

"The technology is such that you don't actually have to have people viewing all these chats, but that you create the software that would flag conversations which could be questionable," said Hecht, who is also a spokesman for Beyond Borders, an agency that looks to protect children from sexual exploitation "Then someone could jump in, monitor and if need be, pull the plug on it." The Entertainment Software Assocation of Canada, which is responsible for video gaming north of the border, did not directly respond to the suggestion of monitoring online conversations.
