    It is you who are assuming it says something it doesn't.
    So again, I would suggest you stop assuming.
    OK.

    That is correct. You should not be assuming that which was not said.

    How can they be eroded when we don't what they are?

    All restrictions...

    So if a gal wants to set up shop outside of a school, that is fine? Or walking up and down the street in front of your house? Or in a public park?

    You have to remember, I do not see prostitution as a big deal myself. However, removing all restrictions I think is pretty stupid.

    If two people want to enter into a service arrangment where someone cuts the grass for someone, or cuts their hair, or drives them somewhere....etc, that is OK.

    But, if the service is some kind of GASP! sexual intercourse.....well then, they can't do that.

    Why?

    By Randall Palmer, Reuters

    OTTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada struck down all current restrictions on prostitution on Friday, including bans on brothels and on street solicitation, declaring the laws were unconstitutional because they violated prostitutes' safety.

    The sweeping 9-0 decision will take effect in one year, inviting Parliament to try to come up with some other way to regulate the sex trade if it chooses to do so.

    [...]

    Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin said many prostitutes "have no meaningful choice" but to "engage in the risky economic activity of prostitution," and that the law should not make such lawful activity more dangerous.

    "It makes no difference that the conduct of pimps and johns is the immediate source of the harms suffered by prostitutes," she wrote.

    "The impugned laws deprive people engaged in a risky, but legal, activity of the means to protect themselves against those risks."

    [...]

    And the further erosion of decent standards.

    The Justice's reasoning is absurd. Or is that liberal?
    I question, are you being forced into prostitution? Are your personal liberties being taken away? Or are you just another guy who doesn't like change and thinks that everybody that doesn't live in a white picket fence house and two kids with a happily married wife is doing something wrong. If it doesn't affect you then why judge? Because you are afraid of what you don't understand?

    Are you at least able to admit that "decent standards" is an entirely subjective notion?

    Your questions are irrelevant to that which was said.

    It is a further erosion.
    It is stating a fact.
    Don't read into, or assume anything by that.
