Maybe Canada can replace Thailand as the go-to destination for the totally depraved. It’s on track to.
An Ontario court has struck down key provisions in Canada’s prostitution laws in a case that could set a precedent for the country. Prostitution itself is not illegal in Canada, but the court struck down three provisions that criminalized most aspects of it. Communicating for the purposes of prostitution, pimping and operating a brothel were decriminalized under the court’s ruling. Ontario Superior Court Justice Susan Himel ruled Tuesday that the dangers prostitutes face far outweigh any harm which may be faced by the public. Himel said the laws set up to protect prostitutes actually harm them.
Nice, huh… Well this fills me with a measure of relief since it shows that American Judges aren’t the only ones devoid of sense.
