    You are not making any sense. It seems purposely so.

    Which standards have been eroded? All this means is that a prostitute can now legally talk with a potential customer in the open, instead of having to jump in a car or duck down an alley to hold discussions. This gives the prostitute an opportunity to decide whether or not this is a person she wants to deal with.

    The Canadian Govt. will come up with a new law in the coming year. Perhaps one that makes it illegal to buy sex. This would mean only johns can be arrested.

    This is good news indeed.
    Some forms of prostitution were already legal, this just makes every other form legal aswell.

    Well unless a court strikes that one down to. Four of those judges were appointed by the Conservatives and it was still unanimous. The Conservatives would be hypocrites if they tried.

    Of course they have.


    I do not care if you agree or don't agree with those standards. They have been further eroded.
    We would not keep asking if "we all knew."

    Now...can you tell us or not? (Well, you wont, but that is different)

    BS!
    It is in the OP. Either you read it or you didn't.
    If you didn't that is on you. Go back and read it.
    If you did, then you are playing an absurd game.

    And frankly you are being silly saying you don't know what those standards that were that were changed by the Court.

    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.
    Any business must conform to commercial zoning and any other conditions in their business licenses.

    Is there a law currently in Canada for proper zoning of prostitution? Are there business licenses for prostitution?

    Hmm, so Canada now issues business licenses to street prostitutes?
