    Unfortunately for you there is no protections in either the canadian or US constitution that protects its citizens from the erosion of society. Guess we will just have to live

    This removal of all restrictions makes Canada almost sound like a Libertarian Paradise. 16 year old girl prostitution herself to a 16 year old boy, why not? Hookers setting up at bus stops, what the heck, why not? No restrictions after all.

    Now what they should have done if they were smart was to overthrow parts, pending revision of current laws. Throwing out all restrictions is simple insanity.

    I think I tend to agree with this sentiment. It's bad enough that boys and girls don't court each other anymore as it is, now the youngens rather than date will arrange business transactions, and it will become commonplace. Christ even in Amsterdam prostitution is only allowed in key locations. I think the court was very short sighted on this one, and I'm actually for the legalizing prostitution under sober common sense restrictions, but this seems a bit to far, and potentially dangerous for a society as a whole.

    The law of unintended consequences would apply here.

    In related (?) news, immigration to Canada has gone up 3000% since the Supreme Court announcement.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    My guess is that the Canadian Ballet will be offering a new line item on its menu for their guests.

    Canadian Ballet refers to the Sundowner strip club in Niagara Falls, Ca. World famous place so many will know what I'm talking about.

    Montreal has a whole area designated to this and those things were already on the menu.

    This is good news indeed.
