    LOL Sorry no. It was something that seemed implied as next steps in the article.

    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.
    I did you the courtesy of going back and reading it again.

    Nowhere did it list 'standards of decency or indecency'....that you claim *we all know."


    So...can you please answer the question, as the article did not.

    The problem is, these things need to be discussed and implemented before all existing laws are struck down.

    Many times here in the US we have had Supreme Courts toss a law out, but by sending it back to the State or Community to be reworked, not simply tossing out every law.

    re: Canada high court strikes down all restrictions on prostitution [W:232]

    I just went and read some articles on this, and it simply blows my mind.

    The high court struck down all three prostitution-related laws: against keeping a brothel, living on the avails of prostitution, and street soliciting. The landmark ruling comes more than two decades after the Supreme Court last upheld the country's anti-prostitution laws.

    The decision upheld an Ontario Court of Appeal ruling last year that struck down the ban on brothels on the grounds that it endangered sex workers by forcing them onto the streets.
    Canadian court strikes down anti-prostitution laws

    Now am I the only one scratching my head over this? They say brothels keep it off the streets and make it safer, yet at the same time makes it legal to solicit on the streets.

    Sorry, if I lived in Canada I would have a gigantic sign made up saying "This whore is a prostitute", and walk behind any lady I saw soliciting in my neighborhood. So they have a legal Constitutional right to do it on the street. Fine, I just do not want it on my street, and will just use my legal right of free speech to hopefully make them move elsewhere.

    Who knows, I might even make a business of making such signs, so others can do the same thing until they go somewhere more appropriate. Like say a rural farm road where they only annoy the cows and goats.

    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.
    This decision did not say that the law could not regulate or restrict prostitution in any way. It merely struck down the restrictions that existed.

    That was done by a ballot initiative/legislative process, not judicial process.

    Sorry, analogy fail.

    But it will take months at the minimum to enact such restrictions. So until such restrictions are enacted and vetted legally, we have none at all.

    Why should people have their liberty restricted by laws which contradict the constitution simply because the legislature was too incompetent to craft a legitimate law?

    It will evolve, just like the pot laws and similar things. Do you see some particular dangers to society or prostitutes that didnt exist before?
